HLB EARNS THIRD PLACE IN THE STATE ULL SHOWCASE OF MARCHING BANDS

The 2017 Marching Sensation from the Braves Reservation made H. L. Bourgeois history by placing THIRD in the  Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands, held at ULL’s Cajun Field, on Saturday, November 4, 2017! The band received ratings of superior in Drum Major, Percussion, Guard, and Band earning them a sweepstakes. The band also was awarded 2nd place best in class in the very competitive AAA classification.
 

For the first time in the 28 year history of the event, and in school history, the marching band scored high enough in the preliminary performance to qualify them for a finals performance with the top 11 bands of the night.
 

H. L. Bourgeois performed second in the finals performance and would later be awarded a numerical score of 88.93  for their show “Fly Beyond: Why the Caged Bird Sings,” enough to make them the first HLB band to finish in the contest’s coveted Top 10, earning them the title and final ranking of the 3rd best band at the state championship. The band competed against 35 schools throughout the state and was 3rd next to Lafayette High School and Central Lafourche.
