Yesterday, the Eustace Bulldog Band competed in the UIL Concert and Sight Reading Contest at Canton. In the concert contest, the band plays three musical selections and is rated by a judge on overall performance. In the sight reading section, a band receives a piece of music that they have never before played. The director has a certain amount of time to go over the selection with the band, and then the band plays the selection for a judge.
In both the concert and sight reading section, the EHS band received a Division II rating. This is the second highest rating that a band may receive. I want to thank our band directors, Todd Felty and Crystal Heidel and all the members of the band for all of their hard work in preparing for this contest. A video of the concert portion of the contest is on the Eustace ISD YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/user/EustaceISD.

In the JV Girls Division, Eustace won with meet with a total point count of 232. The JV Boys finished second behind Mineola by 1.5 points. The Varsity Girls won their division by scoring a total of 147.5 points. The varsity boys finished second behind Mineola with a total point count of 125 points.
Congratulations to all the participants on their strong showing in yesterday’s meet. A special thank you to all the workers and volunteers that helped make the track meet a great success. A copy of the entire results package is attached at the end of this post.
