(ABC 6 News) -- The Minnesota Indoor State Drumline Finals were held at the Mayo Civic Center today.

And a team from Rochester has a reputation for doing very well.

Lourdes High School is back again and their coach is excited over what they can deliver this year.

According to Lourdes High School Drumline Director his team has done really well, "We've done really well, we won the state title two years ago in 2011 and we took 2nd last year in 2013. We've gone out to the World Championships the last three years and we have missed the finals by about a tenth of a point each of the times."

The national championships are in Dayton, Ohio.

Six of the twenty-six teams from this event will compete in that.

This is the first time the state finals have been held in Rochester.

It's been hosted in St. Cloud and Minneapolis for the past two decades.
