The Rising Sun Shiner Pride Marching Band capped off the 2012 marching season with a fifth place finish in the Mid-States Finals on Saturday, Nov. 3 at Shea Stadium in Norwood, Ohio.

Playing through a heavy afternoon rain, director Ron Eads saw his troops take a fifth place finish in the preliminaries of the 20 band event to tie the schools highest placement ever in the post-season event. With just three-tenths separating Rising Sun and fourth place Gibson Southern, Eads was optimistic for the final round with the top 10 bands competing.
