The San Benito High School Mighty Greyhound Marching Band is headed to state…again.
After placing second at Area competition on Saturday – higher than any other high school band from the Rio Grande Valley – SBHS Band Director Marc Perea expressed enthusiasm and pride in his students. It’s pride shared by many supporters who flocked to the SBHS band hall Sunday afternoon to give the band a hero’s welcome.
“This whole past weekend was just pretty surreal for us, and to walk away the best band in the Valley really speaks volumes about our community and what we’ve been able to do in the past six years,” said Perea.
