The Brick Township High School’s “Marching Dragons” marching band was recent honored by the township council for winning a state championship-level competition.

The honor comes after the band achieved an amazing feat. This past season, the Marching Dragons had an undefeated regular season, placing first in every competition they were in. They won the New Jersey Tournament of Bands Region 7 Championship, the New Jersey Tournament of Bands State Championship and finished second place at the Tournament of Bands Atlantic Coast Championship, earning the highest score in the school’s history.

“Winning a state championship is an incredible achievement, whether that is on a football field, a wrestling mat, a bowling alley or as a marching band. The Marching Dragons showed an extraordinary amount of dedication, commitment, discipline, skill and musicianship this past season,” said Mayor Lisa Crate. “Their achievements are a testament to that hard work and it is my honor to recognize them for their well-deserved and well-earned success.”

Crate invited band members to the most recent township council meeting and honored them with the declaration of Feb. 15 as “Brick Township High School Marching Dragons Day” in the Township of Brick. An official proclamation was presented to Band Director Christian Negri at the meeting.

“As a member of my high school’s color guard, I am familiar with how much practice and hard work goes into being in the marching band. I also know that I cherish each moment I spent with my friends in the band back then and the memories I made,” said Crate. “I commend each member of the Marching Dragons and wish them all continued success!”
