The Whitesboro marching band arrived home victorious after winning the Division Two Texas Marching Championship. The band beat out 19 other high schools to claim the title.

The marching band was greeted with a hero's welcome home when they returned from San Antonio.

Five judges scored each band in two categories: Music and marching. Whitesboro's performance in the preliminaries earned them a spot in the finals.

"They played with passion, and with great energy, and great confidence, and we all walked off the field and collectively said this is our best, and whether we win with this or not, it's our best, and that's all we can do," said band director Jim Cude.

"Absolutely incredible," said drum major Cody Fennell. "I don't know, there's no words to describe that feeling when you're on the field, "in first place is Whitesboro", it's incredible."

The Whitesboro band beat out nine other high school bands during the finals to claim the state championship.
