"Yes, I'm very proud of them," ELC band director Laura Giebler said of her musicians. "They've been working really hard."

Giebler said judges at Saturday's clinic in Fort reflected that same sentiment, and she added that this is one of the first years the band has done so well.

The band's selections include Born This Way, Crazy in Love, Someone Like You/Rumor Has It and Firework. Giebler said the band currently is focusing most on the last routine.

The ELC marching band has 51 members including 31 winds, 11 percussion, eight color guard members and one drum major. Betty Lou Jones is color guard instructor.

ELC will next compete this Saturday, Sept. 29 in Algona at 7:30 p.m. at Algona High School and again in Fort Dodge at Dodger Stadium on Oct. 6 at 1:30 p.m.
