Last week the Sachem High School Marching Band held its first practice on the football field of Sachem East High School. The new season has some fresh faces at leadership positions, including new drum majors and new field majors.
Last year the band placed third in the state, beating out all the other Long Island teams at the tournament in Syracuse. This year they hope to build upon that momentum as band members have increased and director George Macchio is back for another season.
