Dear fans of the Trojan Marching Band,

​We are excited to invite you to the 26th Annual Tennessee Valley Invitational Marching Competition at James F. Moore Stadium. For over 25 years, the Muscle Shoals Band Boosters have tried to provide the most hospitable and well-run marching band contest in North Alabama. This year should be no different.

​We hope you decide to join us at the 26th annual TVIMC on Saturday, October 20, 2018!

Lady Trojans Volleyball Win County Tournament!

Over the weekend, the Muscle Shoals Lady Trojan volleyball team won the county tournament held at Colbert Heights High School. Head Coach Maggie Finley reflected on the game by saying, "Those two games with Deshler at the end were straight brawls, but we got the last lick!"

Coming up: The Lady Trojans will host the Area Volleyball Tournament on Monday, October 22 at the MSHS Gym. Athens and Columbia will play in the 1st round. The winner will face the Lady Trojans. The area champion and runner-up will advance to sub-regionals in Huntsville on Thursday, October 25. Game time on the 25th will depend on our placement in the Area Tournament. Area winner will play at 3:30 on Thursday, Oct. 25 and area runner-up will play at 2:00 on Thursday, Oct. 25. Students will be permitted to check-out and attend the games in Huntsville. More information from the principal will be sent out after the Area Tournament on Oct. 22.
