Oswego’s Marching Buccaneers posted their best score of the field band season Saturday night at West Genesee.

The Bucs posted a score of 83.30 for its show, called “The Search”.

Central Square finished just above the Bucs, while Phoenix, in the Small Schools 2 class, scored 73.75.  Both scores were strong improvements over their last performance scores.

The scores from the National class at West Genesee:

  • Victor 89.95
  • Liverpool 88.05
  • Cicero-North Syracuse 85.25
  • Central Square 84.90
  • Oswego 83.30

Host West Genesee marched for exhibition only.

Oswego’s score represents a solid gain for the unit, improving by 9 points from its season opening score of 74.25 at Jordan-Elbridge. The Marching Bucs have closed much of the gap with their counterparts in the National class.

Only Liverpool, with a 10 point gain from the start of the season, has done better.

The Marching Bucs perform again Saturday in New Hartford, against traditional powers West Genesee and Cicero-North Syracuse.
