About 70 Robinson High School students rang in the new year performing in Tampa, Fla.

Members of the RHS Marching Maroons traveled to Tampa to participate in the 2019 Outback Bowl. They were accompanied by band director Justin Murray, colorguard director Jessica Cheesman, their fellow Robinson Unit 2 staff members Chris Jansen, Andrew Flynn and Dan Brickner, principal Victoria McDonald and 15 chaperones.

First-year director Murray said his predecessor, Keegan Tucker, applied for the band to participate. The cost was $800 per student.

"Thankfully the RHS Band Boosters are great and resourceful and helped come up with numerous fundraisers and completed several grant applications in order for us to be able to go," Murray said.

The band performed a halftime show alongside about 1,200 students from 13 other schools in 11 states during halftime Jan. 1. During the game, the Iowa Hawkeyes bested the Mississippi State Bulldogs 27-22.

The Maroons also competed in a field show contest and performed in the Ybor City New Year's Parade.

The band earned a first place trophy in their class for the parade, a second-place "Overall Crowd Pleaser" award for the parade and third place for the field show contest.

The Maroons also spent one morning at the beach. For some students, it was their first time to do so. New Year's Eve was spent at Busch Gardens, where the festivities included a massive fireworks show.
