Highlander Band Named Grand Champions at Midlothian Marching Showcase

The Highlander Band claimed its first Grand Champion title after competing against numerous 5A and 6A schools on Oct. 7 at the Midlothian Marching Showcase.

While the program has earned a number of class championships over the last four years, the band has never won a large marching contest until now.

They also won caption awards for best general effect, best marching, best winds, and best percussion.

The Highlander Band will compete against other 5A schools Oct. 19 in the UIL Region Marching Band Contest in hopes of advancing to the UIL Area competition Oct. 28.

"I Do" Takes Second Place at Mansfield Preview Of Champions

Amidst tough competition between 28 bands at the Mansfield Preview of Champions invitational marching competition on Saturday, September 30, the Highlander Band took second place behind Haltom by only three-tenths of a point for their 2017 marching show, “I Do.” The band also won caption awards for best visuals and best general effect from a finals field that included bands from six other 5A schools and three 6A schools.

In preliminary competition, the band swept all caption honors, including best percussion, best color guard, best music execution, and best visuals, and won first place in Class C for bands of similar size before advancing to finals with best color guard honors and in second place overall.

The band continues to polish their performance for this week’s Midlothian Marching Showcase on Saturday, October 7, and the UIL Region Marching Band Contest on Thursday, October 19.
