Tiger Band Receives UIL First Division Rating for 25th Consecutive Year

Congratulations to the Frenship Tiger Band for another great performance that led to a First Division rating at the Region 16 UIL Marching Contest last Saturday at Lowrey Field in Lubbock. The Division I rating marks the 25th consecutive year the band has received the competition’s highest honor.

Since this is not a year designated for Class 6A bands to compete for a state championship, Saturday’s contest marked the end of competitive marching season for the Tiger Band.

It was another successful season of highlights and trophies.  Below are the results from this season’s marching competition:

  • West Texas Auxiliary Contest, Lubbock: Outstanding Band, Outstanding Guard, Outstanding Twirlers, Outstanding Percussion Line, Outstanding Drum Majors.
  • Tumbleweed Classic Marching Festival, Denver City: Outstanding Band, Outstanding Drum Line, Outstanding Drum Majors, Outstanding Soloists.
  • Lubbock Marching Festival: Finished in second place behind the Clovis High School Band
  • Bands of America Contest, Midland: First ever performance for Frenship at a Bands of America Contest.  The Tiger Band finished in 11th place.  Bands from Nebraska, New Mexico, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin and other Texas schools competed in the contest.

“It has been a great season for the Frenship Band,” said Tom SoRelle, FHS Director of Bands. “Our show, entitled Joy, has been a fan favorite at all of our performances.”
