NORWALK, Conn. -- The Norwalk Marching Bears continued their winning ways as they posted their highest scores of the year in two out-of-state competitions last  weekend.

On Saturday, the Bears marched to Long Island where they appeared in a New York State Field Band Conference competition hosted by the Walt Whitman High School of Huntington Station. With a score of 90.80 they were able to beat a polished Long Island band, Brentwood, which totaled 88.15.

The following day Norwalk traveled to LaGrange, a competition hosted by Arlington High School. There they posted a 90.10 as they again bested Brentwood (89.15).

This weekend the Marching Bears will head to Shelton for a Music Arts Conference (MAC) competition. Norwalk is unbeaten in MAC events this season. Norwalk will have its Cavalcade band competition on Nov. 2.

Love all the great stories.

Thank you for the coverage of the Norwalk Marching Bears. We appreciate the sense of pride these articles help create within our community. These children work hard and play harder. Eyes with pride!

It is wonderful to see the hard work of these kids being recognized. Their efforts here will help them throughout their lives.

I appreciate your articles about NHS Marching Band. As a past and future band parent of Norwalk Marching Bears, I appreciate your coverage of the ongoing accomplishments of the Marching Bears. I do wonder why you do not do equal coverage of the Brien McMahon marching band? They also compete each week and they are giving their all and practicing and traveling to their competitions. Since we only have the 2 high schools in town it might be fair if they both got equal coverage in your news articles.
