The Dutchtown High School Band Boosters presented Athletic Director Benny Saia with a check for $1,500 to help purchase a cover for the track in the stadium.

Band Boosters elected to make this contribution because the Athletic Department allows the Dutchtown Sound to use Griffin Stadium as needed, and allows the band to enter the stadium on the track.

The track takes wear and tear from the band and the football players’ cleats.

Last year, Coach Saia donated to Band Boosters a cover for the gymnasium floor that protects the floor during the annual Indoor Winterguard and Drumline Festival that the school hosts.
