Members of the Port Isabel High School Silver Tarpon Marching Band raised their game last Saturday. They placed fourth in the finals of the area marching band competition at Corpus Christi Calallen and advance to next week’s state marching contest in San Antonio.
In order to make Saturday night’s final, the band had to place in the top 10 Class 4A bands in the contest’s preliminary competition that day. They took a third-place ranking into that evening’s performance. After the last band had left the field sometime after 10 p.m. that night, the Port Isabel band was shown in fourth place. The top six bands move on to state competition.
