TELL CITY – “I think the kids did a really great job” Saturday at the Evansville North Invitational, the director of the Tell City Marching Marksmen said Wednesday.

“They worked really hard the week before and we learned almost all of the fourth movement,” Natasha Edmondson said, “so we were able to perform pretty much the entire show, and they pulled it off; they got third place.”

That was out of seven bands, according to results posted at IndianaMarching.com. Southridge and North Posey finished in the first two places, and behind the Marksmen were Tecumseh, Perry Central, Heritage Hills and Northeast Dubois.

“The whole thing was strong,” Edmondson said about Tell City’s performance. “We did much better this week at keeping a nice, steady pulse. Everybody could kind of feel the groove and feel the beat of the music. That was one thing we struggled with the week before, and this week we didn’t seem to have that trouble. They played nice and strong, they were loud, I mean, they did everything they could do.”

The Marching Marksmen will take the field at 5:54 p.m. Central time Saturday at Springs Valley.
