Band Competes With State on Their Minds

Robert Carlile, Co-Editor-in-Chief

All of band’s hard work comes down to this moment. Every day out in the sun practicing, every long night spent cheering on the football boys under the Friday night lights, and the countless hours spent practicing all boils down to one march.

Wednesday, October 28 the Roarin’ Blue Band travels to Texas Drive Stadium in New Caney where they will be performing for a spot to go to state.

Band will arrive at school early Wednesday morning at 5:00 am and leave for the stadium at 6:30 am. Arriving with plenty of time to warm up before their performance at 9:45 am  in front of the judges.

Competing for state alongside 20 different greater houston area schools, the band will perform as well as they can in hopes of going to state. Once all of the schools have performed, the top qualifying schools will be announced at 3:30 pm to determine which schools will move on to the finals.

Later in the evening schools who moved on to finals will perform again to determine the top four schools. The bands in the top four will advance to state at San Antonio a week from regional competition day.

The Roarin’ Blue Band has prepared hard all season long for this opportunity, win or lose at competition they have represented the school with the utmost of integrity in true Wildcat fashion.
