Marching Band Results, Ratings, and Tweets

November 6 Update:
Congratulations, marching band students, directors, and supporters! All five Mansfield ISD high school bands made a first division rating at the Region marching contest last week.

All three of our 4A bands (Summit, Legacy and Lake Ridge) advanced out of the preliminary phase of competition at the Area contest this past Saturday.

Mansfield Lake Ridge High School advanced to the 4A state marching contest that will take place in San Antonio on Tuesday, November 5. Lake Ridge HS has been open for only two years and this is the first year the band was eligible to compete and continue on to the next level.

The bands, with color guard members helping amp up performances, were ranked in the finals for music and marching skills."
