After its first three competitive wins, the band hopes to continue its winning streak at its next regional competition on October 25. After months of practice the students are eager to achieve their goal of placing as high as possible in all six of their competitions during the year.

The UIL competition allows marching bands to present as much of their competitive show as they possibly can in the allotted time. Each show ranges from about seven to twelve minutes according to band director Andrew Sealy.

“We put about eight minutes out there,” Sealy said. “I wanted [the students] to be genuinely excited with their performance.”

Although he realized his students would be competitive, Sealy said he didn’t know what to expect from the panel of judges, especially in the first competition.

“You never know what’s going to happen when you turn things over to a group of seven judges,” Sealy said. “I was pleased that our kids did not let their performance level down, they increased their performance level.”

The students’ standards for themselves allowed them to push ahead of the other schools; however, they are still uncertain with how they will do in their upcoming performances.

“Getting first is awesome,” Junior Ethen Ming said. “But it’s not the end of the road. We still have state.”
