New York State Field Band State Championships Sunday at the Dome

Three Oswego County field bands will compete for state championships Sunday at the Carrier Dome.

Oswego, Phoenix and Central Square bands will compete.

Phoenix competes at 11:08 a.m. in the Small School 2 class. Central Square competes at 3:30 p.m. in the Large School 2 class while Oswego performs at 6:52 p.m. in the Small School 1 class.

So far this year, Phoenix has five first place scores in competition. Oswego has a first, a second, two thirds and a fourth while Central Square has two firsts and three seconds.

The Marching Bucs of Oswego High School are one of the charter members of the New York State Field Band Conference.

Last Saturday night at Central Square, the Marching Bucs captured first place at the Central Square Red Hawks competition with an 82.30 score while runner-up East Syracuse Minoa earned an 81.80.

Oswego is coming off two solid weeks and is peaking for the annual appearance in the state championship event.

The Carrier Dome show is one of the most emotional of the year as it is the final time the band will take the field for competition this school year.

Tickets will be available at the Carrier Dome Sunday. There is plenty of parking surrounding the Carrier Dome, but fans are asked to arrive early due to usually long lines and security check points at the gates.
