Mansfield’s Vernon Newsom Stadium was the site of marching band competitions Tuesday. Among high schools that competed were bands in the University Interscholastic League’s Region 5-5A. Bands performing in that contest included Mansfield Lake Ridge, Fort Worth’s Eastern Hills and Arlington’s Juan Seguin High School.
This year, marching bands from 4A and 6A high schools advance to state level competition. The state competition will be held Nov. 7-9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
