Athletic department exploring possibility of a drum line

By Daniel Kim

The Athletic Department and performing arts teacher Mark Hilt have been discussing the possibility of a drum line here at the Upper School.

“We’ve spoken with a couple of students about their interest in participating to kind of gauge and see if we could get enough kids to do it,” Head of Athletics Audrius Barzdukas said.

Discussion about a drum line started a little more than a year ago, Barzdukas said. However, it is only recently that the idea has started to pick up speed.

“Mr. Hilt has sent us a list of drummers that would make up the drum line and has put us in contact with the drum line coach,” Barzdukas said. “Things have kind of accelerated.”

“There have been discussions about a drum line but nothing has been officially decided,” Atheltics Director Terry Barnum said.
