State Marching Contest

On Tuesday, November 6, 2012, the Hendrickson Hawk Marching Band competed at the Alamodome, in the UIL 5A Texas State Marching Contest. Ed, Shannon and I drove down to San Antonio to watch Mason and Simon in the big contest. Grandlally and Grandad met us there. We had our signs and shirts!

This was HHSs first time competing in the State Competition as  5A. It was a big deal that they made it that far!

Here the band, led by Mr. Gundersen, takes the field! Go, Hawk Band!

 It's show time! 
This year's marching show was called, "Dr. Atomic," hence the lab coats.
 Mason is smack center in this picture!
 And again here!
  That's my Hawk-Boy!
The Hawks didn't place in the finals, sadly. However, I am pleased to to say that Mason and Simon had a great attitude about the whole thing. They were proud to have made it to State their first year as freshman and newly in the 5A division. The moms, on the other hand, had to come around to the boy's way of thinking! Ha!
