On Oct. 30 at Pennington Field, the Falcon Band advanced to UIL State for the first time in school history. After advancing from region, Oasis went on to compete in area last Saturday. Up until now, Timber Creek has never made it past UIL Area, instead, being the state alternate for the last five years.

The top five schools get to advance to State. It was a very close decision with Oasis tying with L.D. Bell High School for fifth place, with a score of 28. It boiled down to judge’s preference on who would take the last spot for advancement.

“Before they even announced that we had gotten fifth place, everyone started yelling and cheering like crazy,” said junior color guard member, Mason Bass. “The seniors had started crying because they had finally made state and I’m really happy that they finally get to go especially since they weren’t able to go their freshman year.”

Now the Falcon Band will travel next week to San Antonio to compete for the state title. Oasis will also be competing in Bands of America: San Antonio on Friday, Nov. 5, 2021, bringing an end to their 2021 marching season.
