The Hays CISD band programs continue their decades-long tradi- tion of excellence and the fLrst view of the programs' coming success always shows itself at the middle school level. The district's middle school directors, the foundation of the high schools' success, uniformly expressed appreci- ation for their students' commitment and efforts. At Dahlstrom, Leroy Gerdes called his wind ensembles showing part of"a great day." Gerdes noted the fact that it had been four years since the Mustang Wind Ensemble took Sweepstakes and "many, many years since both Dald- strom bands received Sweepstakes in the same year!" Citing his students' "raising the bar on excellence of per- formance and achieving way beyond their grade-level expectations," Gerdes stressed his and partner Sharran Lus- by+s pride in both Mustang bands. At Chapa, Eddie Briskey said, "We are very proud of all of our band stu- dents. Everybody worked very hard and did a wonderful job at UIL on both days." Referring to the historic Sweep- stakes"first," Briskey said, "We want to thank all of the students for their hard work, and our parents for supporting us, bringing kids to rehearsals, and making it out to UIL"i Barton's BJ. Sayger, as well, cap- tured the satisfaction he and partner Amanda Bran& felt with the twin Sweepstakes effort. Sayger said he was "super proud" of how both bands per- formed "and how they carried thezn- selves into the Sight-reading morn." ~a~ger noted, "the parents, teachers administration at Barton really support what we do daily in band, and the competitions ratings are the result of that support."
