wtg Vickie - thrilled for you and your kids

We go Saturday to Birdville in North Richland Hills to compete agains 21 bands for 4 spots going to State UIL.

We've gone for the past 7 years & taken home first 3 in a row - it has been such a challenging year and of course everyone is after us and we know that one day we won't - I'm just hoping they do "4 in a row" since it's my daughters senior year - but we will be thrilled with just making it again!

GO Band (all bands everywhere!)

Oh that is terrific -- I am always astounded at how much WORK goes into a good band -- and then they make it look so easy on the field. Congrats to your team and your band!

Pretty exciting! Nothing brings a town together like a sports event. This is something that folks will be talking about for years.

WTG Revdodd - it's a great feeling knowing how it makes your kids feel when they have accomplished something through such hard work and dedication - I don't think there is anything in the world like that sense of accomplishment when you know you put everything into it - and actually get to win too

The regular season is now over and with Walker Valley upsetting Cleveland last night it is now official in all the sports sections in the Tennessee papers..RHEA COUNTY IS THE DISTRICT 4 CHAMPIONS...Next Friday night is the first playoff game and we will be playing here at home...Don't know yet if we are playing Clinton or Knox Central. haven't heard the scores from these games yet or who won...My son Justin missed the game last night due to have a 101 degree temperature...This is the Eagles time to soar! Thanks everyone for the support and all the great posts...Just keep our team and the band in your prayers...
