HHS Drum Line
The Hoover High School Drum Line was undefeated during the 2012 fall marching contest season.
The ensemble was the highest scoring drum line and won “Best In Class” at the Spain Park Sparks in the Park Marching Contest on Sept. 29.
The drum line also won “Best In Class” at the Peach State Marching Contest on Oct. 27 in Rome, Ga., and received 97 out of 100, which was the highest scoring drum line out of 23 participating groups from Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.
The competition show was based on original music by wind composer Sean O. Laughlin from San Francisco, along with additional arranging David England and Jeff Fondren. The drum line is directed by Jeff Fondren and assisted by Hoover drum line alumni Jordan Berry and Griffin Hood, both 2009 graduates.
