BRADENTON (SNN TV) - Seven Suncoast marching bands score the highest marks in their annual assessment.

Bands across the area traveled to Manatee High School to perform 7-minute shows on which they've labored for as much as four months.

Emotions ran high for many bands who scored the highest marks -- you can score a poor, fair, good, excellent, and superior. For some bands, this is one stop until the state championships late November. For others, this was their last big performance of the season.

The scores were as follows:


Bayshore High


Lemon Bay High
Manatee High
Palmetto High
Southeast High

Straight Superiors

Braden River High
Charlotte High
Lakewood Ranch High
Parrish High
Riverview High
Sarasota High
Venice High
