The Bangs Dragon Band finished their competition season by earning Division 1 ratings in both UIL concert and sight reading contests in Coleman March 3.

Bangs earned Division 1 ratings from all three judges in each of the contest areas. In addition to the spring contests, the band earned Division 1 ratings in the fall marching contest which qualifies the band for their third straight Sweepstakes honor.

The band would like to thank retired superintendent Bill Foster and current superintendent Tony Truelove for their support of the band program. They would also like to thank the board of trustees as well as the faculty and staff of Bangs ISD for their continued encouragement of the students and the directors.
