Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!

Congratulations to everyone on a rollercoaster of a Saturday at the Bands of America West Texas Regional in Midland Texas. We placed 3rd in our class in prelims and advanced on to the finals competition that evening. We had our best run through of the season in finals and everyone felt great coming off of the field. This was only the 2nd time in school history that the Mighty Hawk Band has made finals in the State of Texas at a Bands of America contest (the last being in 2010) and tied the highest Band of America placement in school history placing 7th in finals. Congratulations guys! That’s the way we wanted to start the competition season. We’re looking forward to finishing Mvt. 3 this week, starting Mvt. 4 as well as having a great week of homecoming festivities.
