They also participated in the Region 2 UIL Marching Contest on Saturday, October 16, and received a Superior rating for their performance of their 2021 contest show - Heliocentric! All three judges were unanimous in their assessment and awarded the group with straight superior ratings. 

The band was overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from our district and community as they made their way to the UIL Area Marching Contest. The kids had a spectacular performance and the district couldn’t be more proud!  

The LDHS Falcon Drumline finished in 3rd place at the 2021 Lewisville Drumline Invitational. In addition to the 3rd place finish, they were also awarded the caption of "Best Bassline." The kids started work on their show in July, and the performance on Saturday was incredible! 

The band students pour their hearts and soul into this program and Lake Dallas couldn’t be more proud of each of them and the directors.
