Presidential Inaugural Parades
In 2008, the Fergus Falls High School Marching band was selected out of 1300 applicants as one of 100 units to march in President Barack Obama's first inaugural parade. In 2012, the marching band was once again selected, this time out of 2800 applicants, to march in President Obama's second inaugural parade.
On March 5, 2011, the Boys Swimming and Diving team won the first state title in FFHS history. It came down to the final 400 freestyle relay. The Otters beat St. Thomas Academy by 1 point and Breck/Blake by 4 points. Although swimming is not a popular sport, it has consistently been FFHS's most successful sport in the last couple decades.
