GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- The Grand Valley hosted the Colorado Bandmasters Association's 1A, 2A, 3A State Championships, with a local high school leading the ranks.
Schools from across the state traveled the distance to showcase what their school had to offer.
Despite the many schools competing, Palisade High School placed second in the challenge.
After the school completed their field show Monday evening, the Grand Valley school placed second with Centaurus High, a Front Range school, beating them to the first place spot.
Palisade is the only Western Slope team receiving such high remarks.
"It speaks volumes for us to go against all the Eastern Slope schools and to represent the Western Slope and the Grand Valley particularly so well," explains Jeff Mason, Palisade High School's Director of Bands.
Palisade began practicing the 8 minute show, Pursuit for Joy, in early August of this year.
