The fifth and sixth grade bands at the Alta Elementary School have been in a battle for the, first ever, Super Bowl of Practice Times Title.
The contest ran during the third nine weeks. "At times they were within 10 minutes of each other," said Judy Clausen, director of the bands. "It was a fun way to encourage extra practice times. The kids really took to the competition. I think we will make this an annual event." The 2001 championship was wrapped up late last week with the fifth grade band surging ahead to win the competition, 13,081 minutes to the sixth graders 11,796 minutes.
