Arms linked together, members of the Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School marching band clutched one another Sunday in the bleachers at Hersheypark Stadium.
Band members erupted into cheers as a chilly breeze blew. The 107-member band had reason to celebrate. They placed first in Group 3 of the Atlantic Coast Championships at the 40th annual Tournament of Bands.
The band was joined in the top five by other midstate bands — Camp Hill High School took second place while Red Land High School placed fourth.
