Dragon Band Places Fifth Overall in State Contest

November 3, 2022 - On November 1st the Shelbyville High School Dragon Band participated in the UIL State Military Marching Contest, which was held at Baylor University’s McLane Stadium in Waco, TX. This contest is open to bands who met the qualifications based off of their UIL Regional marching scores. Early that Tuesday morning the Dragon Band marched in a preliminary round and was later selected as one of five bands who would be advancing into the final round. Under the bright lights of the stadium that evening, the band marched their final round performance.

The final rankings placed the Shelbyville Dragon Band in fifth place overall. A top 5 finish amongst all 1A/2A military marching bands in the state of Texas is a tremendous honor and accolade that these students will be able to carry for the rest of their lives.

The band greatly appreciates all of the wonderful parents, faculty, administrators and community members for their unwavering support and encouragement. It’s a great day to be a Shelbyville Dragon!
