BRISTOL, VIRGINIA-When the last note sounded at the John Battle Invitational marching band competition in Bristol, Virginia, it was evident that Cocke County High School's Red Regiment band had come to town with victory on their minds.

The local group swept top honors, including the grand championship trophy for being the highest scoring band in classes AAA and AAAA.

They also picked up first place honors as the top band in class AAAA, marching, general effect, and drum major categories, and, at the end of the day, received the McDonald's Cynthia Roberts Memorial Championship Cup, a special award given to the highest scoring band in any classification. Members of the Roberts family presented the award.
