Foothill does not compete in the competitions, since it hosts the event. But Foothill's marching band, under the direction of Josh Butterfield, has taken first place in its division in its first two competitions of parade and field shows this year.
Foothill and Amador Valley high schools generally compete in different associations (NCBA and WBA, respectively), but they always support each other's events by registering and competing. The same kind of local support also crosses between towns: Foothill competed last weekend in Dublin High School's WBA band review.
This year Foothill Marching Band has revived its bagpipe corps, which will perform tomorrow.
