The Combs Marching Coyote Regiment has been hard at work since mid-July to get ready for our upcoming competitive season. After a year without competition, we are beyond excited to make a triumphant return to the field! To support the Marching Coyote Regiment, look out for us at any home football game!

Recently, the Combs Band Program was featured in a newsletter from Winter Guard Arizona, the governing body for winter-season marching arts. If you want to read more about the awesome things going on with the Combs Band Program, click on the link below!

This year, the students have been working hard to ensure our success. Below is a picture of the MCR “Paint Crew”. These students volunteer to come early and paint a football field whenever and wherever we need it. Go paint crew!

See you all at our first home football game on September 24th! We are eager to perform and hope you are eager to come see us!
