Forward march

Students in the Cotulla High School Mighty Cowboy Marching Band traveled to Converse on Saturday, November 14, to compete in the annual University Interscholastic League Marching Contest at Judson ISD and earned three Division I ratings of ‘Superior’ from contest judges for their performance of “The Matador y La Rosa” by Sandridge. The top ratings have earned the CHS Band a place in the Area competition, which will be held at Calallen High School on Saturday, December 12. The top-ranked bands at the Area meet will advance to the Texas State Marching Contest. Participation in the UIL band competitions was optional this year because of health and safety concerns during the coronavirus pandemic; Dilley and Pearsall high schools elected not to attend the competition.
