A Look Back At 2019-2021 Memories

History Made! The Westwood Warrior Band is proud to be one of three bands our Round Rock ISD sent in 2021 to UIL Texas State. This was only the second time in our school history to make it to State. Shout out to ALL our sister bands for amazing shows this season given all the challenges we've all faced the past two years.

The Midwest Clinic. We're proud of the Westwood Symphony Orchestra's incredible performance in December 2019 at The Midwest Clinic. The Westwood Symphony Orchestra is one of only three high school full orchestras in the world that was invited to this prestigious event! Equally incredible was the Grisham Honor Band's performance. Bravo to these young musicians!

BOA San Antonio. Our last competition for the 2019 season was at BOA San Antonio. We had a historic finish, coming in 16th overall out of 84 marching bands with a score of 88.40 (see results pdf)! This is the highest score we have ever earned at a BOA Super Regional. We are extremely proud of our students' dedication and perseverance! We look forward to another great season next year!

History Made! The Westwood Warrior Band achieved another historic win at a BOA competition. This time at BOA Houston on Saturday, Oct. 5 in Katy, Texas. For the first time in our school and band history, we placed 2nd place in our Class AAAA at BOA Houston! In addition, Westwood took 3rd place overall in the finals (see full results)! The Texas heat (real feel of 101°) didn't stop us from BELIEVING!

BOA Austin. The Westwood Warrior Band competed in BOA Austin on Saturday, Sept. 28 and, for the first time in our band history, we made finals! Our students have been working so hard and that moment when our name was called was such a joyous and tearful moment. We were excited to share the field with such talented bands, finishing in tenth place. See the full results.
