Congratulations to the Union High School Renegade Regiment, which placed second at the Oklahoma Bandmasters Association 6A State Marching Band Championship over the weekend! Union’s Silver Medal finish was the Regiment’s strongest showing at the OBA State Championship since 2019.
“Enduring cold temperatures, wet conditions, and multiple rain delays, the band pulled off a sensational performance,” said Band Director Charles Pisarra.
The Union High School Renegade Regiment concluded its competitive season on Saturday, October 30 at the Oklahoma Bandmasters Association 6A State Marching Band Championship held at Broken Arrow Stadium.
Originally slated for two rounds of competition (preliminaries & finals), the event transformed to just a single round of performances, with the Renegade Regiment scoring 87.85, earning 2nd Place in Class 6A-1, as well as 2nd Place overall, Pisarra said.
“The staff and students of the Renegade Regiment extend gratitude to the army of dedicated parent volunteers who braved the elements on Saturday to help them achieve their full potential, and to the event hosts at Broken Arrow High School and the OBA Board of Directors for remaining committed to ensure that every competing band was afforded the opportunity to perform at the weather-impeded event,” Pisarra said. “Congrats to the Renegade Regiment on a remarkably successful season!”
"Congratulations to you, the students, and staff for an amazing marching season. The show and performance this year were outstanding," Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said.
