The Roarin’ Band from Tigerland competed at the UIL Region 21 Marching Contest on October 20th in Homer Bryce Stadium at Stephen F. Austin University. The band has worked hard since July to be successful in this contest. They had a great performance, and earned a division one superior rating from every judge! The band has not earned straight ones at UIL Marching Contest since 2010. With a first division rating, the band has qualified for the Area C Marching Contest held at Pine Tree High School on Saturday, October 27th. The band hasn’t advanced to area contest since 2011. The band will compete against other 2A bands from East Texas at a chance to advance to the 2A State Marching Band Contest in San Antonio on November 6th. Great Job Band! Thank you Tenaha ISD administration, TISD staff, parents, and the entire Tenaha community for your continued support of the Tenaha band program!
