The Cedar Park High School and Rouse High School marching bands put an exclamation point on a historic run in the UIL Class 5A Marching Band Contest on Nov. 8 at the Alamodome.

CPHS notched its fourth state championship, the band’s third championship in the last four state competitions. RHS boasted a 9th-place showing in the school’s first trip to state.

The UIL State competition follows an every other year format, with Class 1A, 3A and 5A competing in odd years and Class 2A, 4A and 6A competing in even years.

In 2015, Leander ISD bands accomplished a first for the UIL State Marching Band competition: they took home the top four spots in Class 5A, with Cedar Park HS edging out Vandegrift High School for the top spot. Leander High School and Vista Ridge High School finished in third and fourth place, respectively.

In 2013, Leander ISD bands finished as the top three 5A bands in Texas, with VHS, CPHS and VRHS taking first, second and third place, respectively.

In 2011, when 4A was UIL's second-highest classification level, CPHS was tops in Texas.

LISD has become the first school district in Texas with five HS bands that have earned a spot in a UIL Marching Band Finals Competition!
