2015 Walt Whitman High School Marching Band Honored

The Walt Whitman High School Wildcats Marching Band began its show-stopping season with a first-place win in the Long Island band competition held in Manhasset on October 10th, 2015.  They followed up with L.I. win with a milestone victory for the record books and I presented the 70 piece band ensemble with a proclamation presentation held at Huntington Town Hall on December 8th.

The Wildcats Marching Band is led by Allen Dietz, the band’s coordinator and co-directors Caitlin Coumatos and David Pettas. Under their leadership, the band scored 78.075 in the Long Island Competition and took top honors in three Caption Awards for: Best Music and Visual Performances and Best Overall Effect. In the state championships, the band brought home their first ever First Place win with a score of 86.4 for: Best Visual and Musical Performances, Best Overall Effect and Best Color Guard.
