The band received a Division 2 “Excellent” rating in concert and a Division 1 “Superior” rating in sight reading at the UIL Concert and Sight Reading Evaluation on Wednesday, Mar. 6.

The band was hoping to earn the Sweepstakes award which requires a Superior Division 1 rating in not only sight reading and concert, but marching as well. The band had previously earned a Division 1 Superior rating at marching contest in the fall. 

“I was very pleased with our overall performance and very proud of my students,” band director Brad Roberts said. “We barely missed our opportunity of receiving a Sweepstakes.”

Despite just missing the Sweepstakes award by earning the 2 in concert, band members said they were proud of their performances.

“I thought we played very well,” senior Drum Major Kenna Hall said. “There were certain spots in the music where we struggled, but overall I feel like we did a nice job.”

The band was one judge away from receiving their desired Sweepstakes.

“I know that within the next few years the band will learn from this and continue to get better,” Hall said.
