Seen here providing a smoke-and-lights-filled football halftime show Friday in Olmsted Falls, the Amherst Marching Comets started the competitive season Saturday with a doubleheader on the road. At Nordonia High School, the band won first place in every caption, won overall grand champion, and qualified for state competition for the 15th year in a row. In show two at Revere High, the Comets earned another grand champion title.
