The Pride of Godley placed seventh at the Aubrey Marching Classic on October 1, 2022, at Chaparral Stadium. 

“We are all very proud of the hard work these students have been putting in on this show.  Their resiliency is incredible,” commented band director Joe Walker.  “After a shaky prelims run, the band moved up two places during a clean finals performance. They take every critique to heart and strive for excellence in everything they do!”

The “Pure Imagination” marching show includes music from “Overture from Back to School,” “This is Halloween,” “Now While I'm Around,” “Carnival from Hell,” and “Pure Imagination.”
