West Valley High School's Ram Marching Band took every category at the 14th annual Harvest Marching Band Festival held Saturday at Yakima County Stadium.

The competition attracted bands from all over eastern Washington and Idaho. This year's festival was held at Yakima County Stadium due to construction at Zaepfel Staudium on the Eisenhower High School campus. To accommodate the bands, a regulation 100-yard football field was lined out on the baseball stadium's outfield.

Under the direction of Jeremy Freisz, West Valley took all of top marks in the AAA Large Band division and the Grand Sweepstakes prize.

Naches Valley High School took most of the honors for the A division.
