The North Hardin High School marching band celebrated a significant accomplishment this weekend.

The Trojan Band won second in Class 2-A in the semi­finals portion at the Grand Na­tio­nal Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium in India­na­polis. About 90 bands from numerous states including Ken­tucky, Indiana, California, Ohio, Kansas, Texas and Illi­nois participated.

Band director Brian Fro­edge said the accomplishment was an honor.

“I’m really proud of the students,” he said.

Froege said the band also placed 21st overall in the competition, which is the highest the band has placed in the national championship since he became band director in 2001.

Froedge also credited the parent booster group for its help during the marching band season.

“It was a fantastic season and a really successful weekend at the grand national event,” he said.

The John Hardin High School marching band participated in the same competition and placed seventh in Class 1-A in the preliminary round.
