The Wildcat Marching Band was set to compete at the UIL contest today at Mesquite Memorial Stadium, but the rain may interrupt their plans. In fact, the contest was originally scheduled for last Wednesday, but that date was rained out, also. Drum Major Jillian Barrineau was bummed when she heard the forecast last night. “Homecoming really rejuvenated us,” she told me. “We’re ready to go and we think we’ll do well.” The band made it to the finals in the Plano East competition two weeks ago, where they got third as a team and earned honors as Best Drum Line. If you haven’t seen their halftime show, “Original Gangster,” catch a sneak peek here from Friday’s homecoming game.
