3 at Hernando High named to Florida All-State Choirs

HERNANDO HIGH: Several choral students were selected for the Florida All-State Choirs — Drake Middlebrook for the All-State Men's Choir and Raelis Cantero-Garcia and Hannah Carter for All-State Women's Choir. The students passed three rounds of auditions and had composite scores high enough to earn spots in the choirs.

• The school's Royale Regiment Marching Band competed at the Hurricane Pride Invitational Marching Band Festival at Citrus High School recently and won first place in Class 3A, best in class visual, general effect, music, percussion and auxiliary. The band also qualified to compete in the State Marching Band Championship semifinals in Tampa.

The band, along with 19 high school bands from Hernando, Pasco and Citrus counties, performed for adjudicators who assessed them in various areas. These scores were averaged for a final score, and the band received a superior rating.

• The school's Brooksville Senior FFA chapter rated in the Top 10 in all four categories of the national chapter program. No other chapter nationally received this honor.

Recent graduate Delaney Rose Ahrens placed seventh in the nation with a gold rating for her Animal System Agriscience Fair project.
