The Keller Band is State Bound...Again!

The Keller High School Marching Band has advanced to the UIL State Marching Band Contest for the third consecutive year.

After earning a first division at the UIL Region 30 Marching Contest, they participated in the second level of UIL at the Area B Marching Contest this past Saturday, October 27.  

With a successful prelims run, the band qualified for finals and made the top five, advancing them to the state level.

“We had probably our most electric and exciting finals run,” says senior Brass Captain Abby Tow. “It was such an exhilarating feeling to walk off that field and know we had made ourselves undeniable.”

Although Keller was announced at the end of the competition as being in first place, amendments were made to the scoring process the following day, putting the Waxahachie High School Band in first place and Keller in second.

“Honestly, we don’t care at all,” Tow said. “We had our best performance of the season that night, and we’re still going to State. The judges’ scores don’t matter to us.”

It’s easy to say that Keller High School is beyond excited about the marching band’s success, and looks forward to see how they end their incredible season.

The Keller Band heads to San Antonio early in the morning on Friday, November 2 to participate in the Bands of America San Antonio Super Regional Competition and will stay over the weekend to perform at the UIL State Marching Band Contest on Monday, November 5 and Tuesday, November 6.
