CONTEST RATINGS 2021-2022

The Pride of Pryor has earned straight Superior Ratings October 19th from all 3 judges at the OSSAA NE Regional at Oologah.
 
This is the first step towards our band program trying to earn a sweepstakes trophy for the year.  To earn a sweepstakes trophy we will need to earn superior ratings in concert and sight-reading this spring.  
 
I didn’t send out any announcement from the past contests, but the band did earn some hardware there as well.
