Two Longmont high school drumlines came away from state over the weekend with first place titles to their names.
Silver Creek High School and Longmont High School won their respective categories Saturday at the Rocky Mountain Percussion Association State Championships at Broomfield's 1stBank Center. The Silver Creek percussion ensemble took first place in the Percussion Scholastic Open category, and Longmont High's ensemble took first place in Percussion Scholastic A.
For a team of Advanced Placement chemistry and biology students at Longmont High School, being SMART is a huge compliment. These 9 students are part of the SMART (Students Modeling a Research Topic) team that recently presented at the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’s (ASBMB) conference in Boston, Massachusetts.
Others aren't even Longmont High students. They come from Niwot or Westview Middle School. But they all come together in the Longmont High School band hall to pound sticks against wood and skin and to be the best drumline in state.
"They're still a young group but they've grown a lot from last year," said band director David Merrill. "A really hardworking group of students. They get here early, they work outside of practice, they keep their grades up, they do everything really well."

On February 25th, Longmont High School's Medical & BioScience Academy (MBSA) students visited the Biomedical Engineering Program at Colorado State University. During their visit, they toured the newly-constructed Bioengineering Building, designed and built a prototype for a prosthetic foot, and learned more about the field of biomedical engineering from Dr. Kevin Lear, Director of the Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Program.
Six Longmont High School students in the Medical & BioScience Academy began their internship at Longmont United Hospital with a day-long orientation on January 19th.
