Frisco ISD is proud of all the marching bands for an incredibly successful marching season, including the Wakeland, Lebanon Trail and Lone Star high schools that are headed to State!
This past weekend, the UIL Area B Marching Contest was held at Children's Health Stadium in Prosper where all 10 Frisco ISD 5A Varsity marching bands had advanced to the Area level.
Six FISD marching bands advanced from prelims to finals, including Centennial, Heritage, Lebanon Trail, Lone Star, Reedy and Wakeland.
During finals, the grit and camaraderie between the bands, color guard and drum majors resonated throughout the stadium. The Frisco ISD marching bands cheered and supported each other during every step of the competition, especially when the much-anticipated results were announced at the end of the night.
Wakeland High School took first place for their performance entitled “Dark Waters,” advancing to the 5A UIL State Marching Contest along with Lebanon Trail’s “Sleeping Beauty” and Lone Star’s “Hyde and Seek.”
“The color guard, parent volunteers, drum majors, musicians and directors have spent countless hours over the past few months preparing for these incredibly strong and artistic performances,” said Pete Hazzard, Frisco ISD managing director of fine arts. “There is so much that goes into each marching program and the District’s emphasis on student opportunity continues to show that when students are given the chance to participate, they will find success.”
Wakeland, Lebanon Trail and Lone Star bands will travel to the Alamodome in San Antonio for the UIL State Marching Contest Nov. 1 where they will compete against 30 other 5A bands across the State. The top 12 scoring bands in 5A Prelims will advance to 5A Finals on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
