This is the first year Brentwood has had a competitive field marching band.
Two years ago there were two members in the Brentwood marching band. Now they have enough to perform at halftime and compete in field marching competitions, which is the goal. This is the first year for the Pride of Brentwood Eagle Band to compete with other marching bands. See more band photos at Maplewood-Brentwood Patch Facebook. "The kids are working their butts off and really doing a good job," band director Keith Moyer said.

They’ve been both directions for dockets but never to a school. “I said, what about Brentwood? So here we are,” Richter said. "Richter said the students saw appellate arguments, which is something most people never see. Lawyers argued points of law, rather than points of fact.
