Recently, Nassau County Legislator Rich Nicolello and Mineola Mayor Jack Martins visited the Mineola High School to honor and congratulate the School’s Marching Band on their impressive 1st place victory at the 2009 New York State Field Band Championships.
The competition, held in Syracuse hosted over 5,000 musicians from 52 New York high schools. With a total score of 88.05, the Mineola Mustangs were the sole Long Island band to earn a top spot at the competition. This honor is truly a testament of the students’ and their instructors’ hard work and dedication.
