Following Castle High School's amazing tenth place finish Saturday evening in the finals at Bands of America Grand Nationals, tragedy struck the Marching Knights.
"With incredibly heavy hearts, it saddens us to confirm that the Rinehart family and the Castle Band Family suffered a tragedy on the way home from Indianapolis. David Rinehart, his mother, and Sophie Rinehart were taken from our world in a car accident. [sister] Josie is in the hospital in Bloomington." - Director Dean and Director Eifler.
While we did not know Sophie, this accident reminds how temporary all that we hold dear is in this world. Our thoughts and prayers are with the students and staff at Castle High School, the Rinehart family, and all her friends who miss her dearly. Here are several photos of the talented singer and flautist performing at Bands of America Super Regionals two weeks ago in Indianapolis.
