By Jody O'Hara OAK GROVE - The Stone High Pride received all superior rat- ings at Saturday's Oak Grove Marching Festival. The band was rated in four categories; band, percussion, color guard and drum majors. Drum majors Jessica Dedeaux and Haven Zaydel not only received superior ratings, they were voted Best in Class after having received the highest score for the day. The showing should have the Pride fired up for this week's Region 5 State Marching Festival at Miller Stadium in Gulfport. "(Oak Grove) was a competition we sort of use as a warm-up for this week," said band director Ida Mitchell. The Pride will stay home this Friday, with the approval of head football coach Adam Stone, to tune up for the Region 5 competition. "We'll have a run through of our show on our practice field at the Henry Rath Activity Center," Mitchell said. "We want to invite par- ents and members of the community to come out and give the band sup- port for Saturday." It was at last year's Region 5 festival the Pride received lower rat- ings. Success at this festival determines how far the band can go toward a state title. Mitchell said her musi- cians were eager to prove their mettle. "We are not overconfi- dent," she said. "Our kids are focused and working hard to put on the best show we can." Pair of victories for middle schoolers .
