The Italy Gladiator Regiment Band competed in the Region 8 UIL Marching Contest on Wednesday, October 23. The band received a unanimous 1st division rating from all three UIL judges. The panel consisted of Travis Hobbs (Wall HS), Perry Morris (ATSSB), and Tim Edins (Hamilton).
Mr. Perez would like to thank everyone that came out to support the band. “It was like having home field advantage.” In addition, the band students and band staff would like to thank Clover Stiles for her tireless efforts in all the preparations for meals, snacks, and decorations she prepared for the students.
