Mighty Pirate Band takes 4th in first marching competition; receives Outstanding Soloists honor

This past Saturday, the Pirate Band competed at the RR Marching Contest at Heroes Stadium in San Antonio.  The field of 4A bands was an extremely competitive line-up which included several bands that will probably be UIL Area Finalists this year.  I was very proud of the band's performance, and extremely happy with the results as we finished 4th out of the 6 bands in the field, ahead of Carizzo Springs and Pleasanton, just 5 points behind 3rd place Navarro (251 to 256).

Additionally, Lytle was awarded the 4A caption for "Outstanding Soloists."  This was a great honor for our instrumental soloists (Jessika Saldana, Kristen Villareal, Brandi Perkins and Alyssa Salinas) and our colorguard soloists (Zoe Emley, Chyenne Martinez and Magali Medina).

This week, the band will perform at Harlandale Memorial Stadium at 1:30 in our final competition before the Region XI UIL Marching Contest in Hondo on October 18th.  

 

Thanks to everyone for all the encouragement and other support that you have given the band already this year!
