INDIANAPOLIS — NorthWood won fourth place at the ISSMA marching band state finals on Saturday, Nov. 2, while fellow class C band Fairfield finished in seventh place.

Fairfield band director Andrew Muth said he was surprised at the judges’ choice to put Fairfield in seventh place.

“We weren’t expecting that, but we did our best and that’s all we can hope for,” Muth said. “Looking at it (the judges’ feedback) now, it was really, really tight. We are going to do our best to be back here next year.”

Fairfield drum major Kyle Jones, a sophomore, said prior to the awards ceremony that band members felt good about their performance Saturday.

“Success isn’t always winning, and I think this (performance) was a success,” Jones said.

NorthWood director Eric Criss said he is “thrilled” that the Red Regiment made it to fourth place this year.

“Last year we set as our mission to break into the top five,” Criss said.

He said right after the band’s performance that the group worked intensely the week prior to Saturday’s performance. This work included a last-minute choreography change.

Goshen’s marching band takes the field at 9:01 p.m. in class A.

The results from the class C ISSMA state finals are: first, Concordia Lutheran; second, Western; third, Beech Grove; fourth, NorthWood; fifth, Norwell; sixth, Edgewood; seventh, Fairfield; eighth, Angola; ninth, Lincoln; and 10th, Mount Vernon.

 People wait to cross a street in front of a Shell filling station with the electric indicator showing a liter of regular gas price, top, at 148 yen, or $1.25, per liter (554 yen, or $4.69 per gallon) in Tokyo Friday, Nov. 28, 2014. A renewed plunge in oil prices is a worrying sign of weakness in the global economy that could shake governments dependent on oil revenues. It is also a panacea as pump prices fall, giving individuals more disposable income and lowering costs for many businesses. Partly because of the shale oil boom in the U.S., the world is awash in oil but demand from major economies is weak so prices are falling. The latest slide was triggered by OPEC’s decision Thursday to leave its production target at 30 million barrels a day.
