The St. Helens High School wind ensemble won the Northwest Oregon Conference 5A League Contest hosted at Sandy High School, Thursday, April 14.
During Thursdays competition the band was one of nine school performance ensembles to compete for the league title. The band has not won a league championship since the 2010-11 school year, according Noelle Freshner, direction of bands for the St. Helens School District.
The win guarantees the band will have a spot to compete at the state band competition at Oregon State University on May 13.
