Mabank High School Band Concludes a Memorable Marching Season

BAND
Preparation for the 2018 Fall competition season began on July, 23 in Scottsville, Texas, and concluded this past Saturday in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The Classic on the Cane, held at Northwestern State University, hosted 32 bands from Louisiana and Texas ranging in size from 40 – 250 members. The MHS Panther band finished the competition by earning a Division One rating in Color Guard, Percussion, and Over All Band Performance (a feat only accomplished by three other groups). In addition, MHS Panther band received Outstanding Percussion and finished 2nd place overall!   

The marching band enjoyed a wealth of success leading up to their final competition. To begin the competition season the marching percussion section competed at the Drums On Point Drumline contest in Wills point, TX where they received Most Outstanding Snare Line, Tenor Line, Bass Line, Cymbal Line, Best in Class 4A and overall Grand Champion. 

The Band then competed in two contests on October 6th in Mesquite and Denton. In Mesquite, the band earned First Division ratings from all judges, and then won all caption awards in Denton including best in class Color Guard, visual effect, percussion, and music performance.  

The UIL Regional competition were on October 17 and the Band won its 20th First Division rating within the last 22 years and advanced to Area. At UIL Area, the Band Placed 7th out of 26 Bands and fell just short of State Marching Contest by just two placements. 

As the band moves forward into spring contest season, the Performers and Directors would like to thank MISD administration, the Mabank community members, and all parent volunteers and the Band Boosters for their continued support for music education and the instrumental music program(s) at Mabank ISD.
