Tenaha Roarin’ Band from Tigerland Earns Straight Ones at UIL Marching Contest

October 22, 2019 - The Roarin’ Band from Tigerland competed at the UIL Region 21 Marching Contest on October 19th in Homer Bryce Stadium at Stephen F. Austin University. The band has worked hard since July to be successful at this contest. They had a great performance, and earned a division one superior rating from every judge for the second year in a row!

The band has not earned straight ones in back-to-back years since 2010. With a first division rating at marching contest, the band has taken the first step towards earning a UIL Sweepstakes Award. 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!

The judges gave the band some great compliments. Here are a few: “Good Balance/ Blend” -- “I like the diversity that features everyone” -- “Nice Show!” -- “Good woodwind exposure” -- “Very nice controlled sound” -- “Band marches well” – “Lots of good work evident here.”
