AHS Marching Black & Gold Win 2016 ISSMA Championship
The Avon High School Marching Black and Gold won the 2016 ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) State Championship (Class A)! This is the 13th championship (13 state titles in 16 years) for AHS. The band is led by Director Jay Webb. He is now the winningest band director in Indiana’s 200-year history.
“The Band program is a great deal of pride for the school & community,” said AHS Principal Matt Shockley. “Winning 13 straight championships doesn’t happen by accident. There is no group who works harder.”
During the intense competition, ACSC Superintendent Dr. Maggie Hoernemann said she saw nothing but “beauty and competitive grace” from the students. “They make all of us better and I could not be more proud!”
The ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) Marching Band State Finals were held at Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis. This event is the culmination of many weeks of marching band competitions across the state of Indiana, bringing together the top 10 bands across 4 classes (A, B, C, & D) chosen from the Top 10 in each class in Semi-State competition during the previous weekend. This event typically attracts more than 20,000 marching band fans from across the state throughout the day.
