The Band of Warriors had their first individual contest on Friday, November 13th at East High School. Until this point, every contest we’ve had has been a team event…this one was head to head.
Forty-six members walked through the doors at East to compete against the other schools in our District. The directors and I are happy to announce that forty-one of our Warriors earned a District patch and thirty-three advanced to the Region contest at Alice HS on December 5th!! These are both record numbers for our school!! If you see any of these students, please congratulate them on a job well done!
