On December 3, the Verdugo Hills High School (VHHS) marching band won the LAUSD city championship band competition. The finals took place at at California State University in East Los Angeles.
For two months prior to the finals, the band and drill team competed at various high schools throughout Ventura, Orange and Los Angeles counties. Despite being one of the smaller drum lines in L.A., the unit was undefeated during the competition.
The band, which consists of just 30 members, is led by Ms. Lopez.
