The Wildcat Band travels to Mesquite Memorial Stadium Saturday (October 26) for big UIL Area Competition. When KSST talked with Band Director Spencer Emmert Monday he was not sure when his band would be performing. He supplied the answer Tuesday. The Wildcat Band will play at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Mesquite Memorial Stadium. Emmert said his band students have had a great contest season so far and are continuing to work hard for Saturday. Several bands will be qualifying for state competition at Area. Emmert said any and all support from fans of the band is greatly appreciated.
