PTHS marching band has a fresh look to go with the new Pirate Stadium

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - In keeping with the newness of the Pirate Stadium, the Pine Tree High School Marching Band members are sporting brand new uniforms at the September 13th home game.

Described as "up to date" by Mark Melton, the newly arrived ensembles display the same color spectrum as previous uniforms, but sport a brand new look.

Although the design is fresh and new, Melton noted the uniforms connect to the past with a familiar dark navy background providing for the PT logo to pop.

The final design for the uniforms made by the Stanbury Uniform company of Brookfield, MO was one to which all members of the marching band contributed, Melton said.

With 175 members, the marching band represents one of the largest organizations of students on the high school campus. In preparation for the big night, a student in the band was overheard saying, "We got this on Friday! We can pull this off and look amazing!"

In addition to new uniforms, the 2013 season also introduces new traditions, with the Preview Marching Band Contest scheduled for Saturday, October 12, 2013, at the new Pirate Stadium, located at 3737 W. Loop 281, Longview, TX 75604.

The public is invited to attend, and concessions will be available.

Pine Tree ISD will host a first annual Preview Marching Contest, which welcomes bands of all classifications and sizes, and is designed to provide an opportunity for groups to have a formal run-through before UIL competitions.

The format will include a standard Area marching contest format, including 5 judges, DVD recording with judges audio comments, prelims and finals (if there are more than 10 groups in a class), and awards.

Pine Tree will also host the class 1A and 2A UIL marching contest on October 23 - 24.
