From staff reports
The Ste. Genevieve High School Marching Dragons competed in contests throughout the fall, with success.
The Dragons placed third at the Farmington Invitational and fourth at the Rebel Invitational in Park Hills.
SGHS also served as host for the 13th Annual Ste. Genevieve Marching Festival, with 18 area bands competing.
The Dragons worked this festival, rather than performing.
