On Saturday, October 11th, the Pirate Band competed at the Harlandale Marching Festival. The band did well, placing 3rd behind Boerne and Hondo, and ahead of Devine and Poteet. Additionally, Lytle won the 4A caption for outstanding Drum Majors (Michelle Owen and Faith Soto).
All three of the contest judges agreed that our performance was a 2nd Division (scale of 1-5), so the band will be pushing hard this week to try to move our rating up to a 1st Division for our UIL Contest in Hondo this Saturday. The band is scheduled to perform at 7:30 pm, and we would love to have everyone there for support as we try to earn the right to advance to Area Marching Contest.
