The Washington County Marching Commander Band will be heading to the State Sweet 16 of Marching Band. Last Saturday, the Commander band competed in the KMEA Class 2A West Regional Quarterfinals in Muhlenberg County. Twelve of the best Class 2A bands in western Kentucky competed to advance to the state semifinals. Only eight bands would make the cut. When the contest was complete, Washington County earned the right to advance by placing second in the entire contest. They also earned a distinguished rating. Only four bands earned a distinguished rating that day.
