They play to beat the band

FRANKLIN

These warriors practice for hours every week, all in preparation for one moment.

They're tough, they're confident, they're...the marching band.

Seventeen college marching bands played last weekend at Allentown Stadium. Among them was the University of Massachusetts band, whose ranks include Stefanie Hiller of Franklin.

Her family drove five hours so that Ruth Hiller could see her daughter play the flute for the Minutemen, the Morning Call of Allentown reports.
