The Wildcats Marching Band had to deal with the weather at their first contest of the season Saturday at Sunnyvale. Wildcats Band Director Spencer Emmert said the weather looked good as the band got ready for their first performance Saturday. He said just before they got started, it began to rain. After about a five minute delay, the band was able to perform.

The Wildcats’ band was the only one of the 27 bands at the contest to get rained on. Emmert said despite the distraction, the band put on a great performance and qualified for the top ten band finals. He said as the band headed for the stadium for its finals performance, it was announced that the finals portion of the Sunnyvale contest was being canceled due to the threat of lightning.

The Wildcats Marching Band has their second contest at Mineola Monday. Emmert said the band did get some helpful comments from judges at the Sunnyvale event. He said he went over the critiques over the weekend and shared with the band at a Monday morning rehearsal. The band should receive additional judges’ critiques at the Mineola contest.

The Wildcats Marching Band will compete at a Mount Pleasant Invitational Contest on Saturday before UIL Competition on Tuesday, October 16 also at Mount Pleasant.
