PISD Band Wins UIL Sweepstakes Trophy
The PHS band is pictured with their UIL Sweepstakes trophy they earn Tuesday, March 6th. They were the only high school band to earn the coveted trophy all day. The event was hosted at the Palacios High School Fine Arts Building. 18 bands competed all day. Bands presented a concert program selected from a UIL required list of songs. They also had to perform a piece they had never seen before. The director has only seven minutes to explain the song before the band has to perform for the judges. Palacios scored the only sweepstakes of any high school all day. This means that they have received top judge ratings for marching band, concert performance, and sight reading. This is the second year in a row PHS has earned this honor. The band is directed my Jim Popham and Briana Harmon.
