La Porte High School Bands earn Sweepstakes at spring contest

To achieve the Sweepstakes honor, an orchestra, band or choir must receive composite Division One ratings from judges.

The varsity and non-varsity bands achieved the feat on April 26 and April 27, respectively at Pasadena Dobie High School. The sub-non-varsity group earned a judges' rating of 1 in the concert portion.
Additionally, the varsity band received the Class A-Sweepstakes trophy, the highest level for the UIL evaluation for Texas Band Programs. To receive this high honor, a high school band program must receive Superior ratings (1’s) in UIL Marching Band and Superior Ratings (1’s) with their varsity band at Concert & Sight-reading.
