On October 19, Braswell, Denton, Guyer, and Ryan high school bands earned 1st Division "Superior" ratings at the UIL Region 2 Marching Band Contest at C.H. Collins Stadium. DISD's three 5A bands, Braswell, Denton, and Ryan, have all advanced to compete in the UIL Area B Marching Band Contest at Little Elm Stadium on Saturday, October 26. The contest schedule is below. The top 10 bands from prelims will perform in the finals. After finals, only the top 4 will advance to the UIL State Contest at the San Antonio Alamodome, November 4-5.
The Area contest will be a very competitive contest among some of the best 5A bands in the state. We encourage all of our band families and friends to attend in Little Elm to support and cheer on our students.
We are extremely proud of our bands and the outstanding performances they continue to give. Congratulations to these students and directors on their continued success. We wish our 5A bands all the best at Area!
