  • 10-18-2023 Pirate Band is Going to Area

    On last Saturday, October 14, 2023, the Pirate Band performed for the UIL Region Marching Contest in Hondo. The students performed extremely well, in what was possibly the best performance they have had all year long! In this performance they earned a 1st Division Rating from all three judges, which qualifies the band for their 6th consecutive trip to the UIL Area Marching Contest!

  • 10-10-2023 Best Pirate Band

    ​Two Saturdays ago on September 30, 2023, the Pirate Band competed in a double-header competition. First at the Roughrider Competition at Heroes Stadium in San Antonio, and second at the Hill Country Marching Festival at Fredericksburg High School. While the day was exhausting, the students learned the level of hard work and exhaustion that goes into performing twice in one day – like when you make Finals at Area! Though the results weren’t exactly as we dreamed they would be, we all learned quite a bit that day, earning 4th place overall at both competitions. The sting of a 4th place finish at Roughrider burned even deeper when we found out that 2nd and 3rd place were only 1 point above 4th place.
