The 2023 Richfield High School Marching Spartans wrapped up their season in July following 14 performances at parade contests and other special events throughout the state. They performed exceptionally well throughout the season and set school records for overall scores, placements and caption awards along the way.
Their competitive show, "Metrodance,'' was well received by professional adjudicators and the many thousands of spectators whom the students performed for throughout the summer. The Colorguard Section earned top honors at both the Owatonna and Alexandria parades as the highest-scoring unit, regardless of band size or school size. The Marching Spartans recorded the highest scores since 2010 (when records began being kept), at competitive parades in Waconia, Foley and Alexandria. The group's second-place finish at the Alexandria competition was accompanied by recognitions for Best Percussion and Best Colorguard in their class. At their final parade contest in Roseville, the Marching Spartans finished second in their class, ahead of four of the competing bands they trailed at the same competition in 2022.
The students and staff of the 2023 RHS Marching Spartans would like to thank all of their wonderful volunteer supporters, along with staff from Activities, Transportation, Community Education and Administration for their support.
