The Mighty Bulldog Marching Band received a Division 2 at the UIL Regional Marching Contest yesterday. A Division 2 is the second highest rating that a band can receive. Three judges provided ratings for the band: two judges rated the band at a 2 and one judge rated the band a 1 (a Division 1 is the highest rating a band can receive).
The Bulldog Band had a great performance yesterday in less than ideal weather conditions. The band members, band parents, and band directors put in many long hours of work for this competition. Congratulations and thanks to Todd Felty, Patricia Fields, and Chad Bentley for all the time and effort put in to providing a first-class marching band. Also, I want to thank all the band members for the hours of rehearsal that they put in for this show. Finally, special thanks to the parents of the band members for getting their students to practice and for the support shown to the band program during this marching season.
The Bulldog Band will be performing their marching show at least four more times during the halftime of the Friday night football games.
