WATERLOO — DeKalb High School band department groups scored well in competition Saturday, said band director Terry Fisher.

The DeKalb Winter Guard competed in Goshen and finished second in its class.

“Their consistently high performance level may push them into a higher class of competition. This would be quite an honor,” Fisher said.

DeKalb’s two jazz bands also competed Saturday at the Snider Jazz Festival in Fort Wayne.

“Both groups had outstanding performances that were noted by the judges,” Fisher said about the jazz bands. Logan Gensic earned the outstanding trombone soloist award, and Jazz Band 1 earned second place.
