The Amherst Marching Comets, seen here in the city’s Halloween parade, traveled on Saturday to Hilliard Bradley High School to compete in the Ohio Music Educators Association state finals. The Comets band secured its best state score in history, wowing judges with both its tight choreography and by rolling out the steampunk clockwork props it’s showed off during football halftimes this season. The band scored its 12th consecutive superior rating in its 15th straight year at states.
