The Roarin’ Blue Band competed against eight 4A schools and won 1st in class, outstanding color guard, and 2nd best in percussion in their very first marching band competition.

“I thought the whole band was focused and professional,” said Rachel Moore, “I believe all of our hard work paid off. I’m so proud of what we accomplished.”

The band competed as a 4A school, even though our school is categorized as a 3A because there were no other 3A schools attending the Katy Invitational Marching Festival. With eight other bands competing in the 4A class, the Roarin’ Blue Band won.

“Everyone was looking down on us because we’re just freshman and sophomores,” said Ali Madere, “but on Saturday we proved ourselves. We still have a lot of work to do, but we still have a good chance of making finals at our next marching competition.”

Other schools including Morton Ranch High School, Cy-Creek High School, Seven Lakes High School, Cy-Woods High School and Lamar Consolidated High School competed throughout the day. Tomball High School also competed and  greatly supported the TMHS band.

“It was legit,” said Sophie Pearson, “we were legit.”

The Roarin’ Blue Band will travel to Woodforest Stadium in Conroe for U.I.L on October 18 and then in Huntsville on October 22 for the Sam Houston State University Marching Contest.
