Just a little number counting from these two links

https://web.archive....rching-band.php

https://www.uiltexas...hing-band/state

 

 

1st: Sundown- 7
(1987, 1988, 1989, 2003, 2005, 2009, 2011)
 
2nd: Argyle- 6 (2003, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014) 
 
Tie for 3rd: Denver City- 5 (1983, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989)
Tie for 3rd: Dickison- 5 (1986, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1993)
Tie for 3rd Marcus-5 (2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014)
Tie for 3rd Westfield (1987, 1988, 1989, 1996 1998)
 
Honorable Mentions-
Dripping Springs- 4 (1983, 1984, 1985, 2009)
Cedar Park- 4 (2001, 2011, 2015, 2017)
Queen City- 3 (2007, 2009, 2011)
Robinson- 3 (1984, 1994, 1996)
Canton- 3 (2002, 2004, 2006)
Duncanville- 3 (1986, 1990, 2002)
Georgetown- 3 (1983, 1984)
Holliday- 3 (1993, 1999, 2001)
Iraan- 4 (1986, 1987, 1990, 1991)
 
Longest Streak to exist I believe would be Marcus, as they obtained all 5 of their state championships in a row.
 
The longest standing streak would go to Cedar Park, with 2 state championships in a row. 
 
I would also like to list bands with the most apperances at state, but as there are no reliable full results from before 2009, it would be hard to make.

Thank you! I just realized I read "Flower Mound Marcus Lewisville" thinking it was Flower Mound, and not Marcus from Flower Mound. As for Westfield, are Spring Westfield and Houston Westfield the same school? They're listed as two such schools in the archive.

Yes, those are both the same school. Spring High school, which won the 5A state championship in 1992 and 1994 is in the same school district.

Gonna brag on my old school real quick, Poteet has won 3 times ('97, '05, and '07) and been to State 14 times and qualified for 15 (we were kept from attending in 2011 for an "ineligible marcher"). Every state year since 1990!

P.S. All have been in old 4A/new 5A

P.P.S We've medaled 6 times *somewhat humble brag*

Georgetown won 4A in '80, '81 and '82 as well, but I don't know if you would count the pilot years before '83. If we did, that would also mean they also hold the record streak at 6 ('80, '81, '82, '83, '84, '85).

'82
5A - Odessa Permian
4A - Georgetown
3A - Medina Valley
2A - Clint
1A - LBJ

'81
5A - Crockett
4A - Georgetown
3A - Waco Robinson
2A - Southlake Carroll
1A - Iraan

'80
5A - Crockett
4A - Georgetown
3A - Medina Valley
2A - Howe
1A - Iraan (this would bump their total to 6 as well)

'79
4A - Round Rock
3A - Fredricksburg
2A - Medina Valley
1A - Southlake Carroll



Dug these out of the Leaguer archive.  I love reading the band articles.  Apparently people used to bet on marching contests way back in the day like they would at a horse track.

Whoa, seriously?!!  And we thought WE had it bad!  


Each day is a gift. That’s why it’s called “the present.”

Does the Leaguer have the full results from the pilot years? I would absolutely love to see that.

Only the top 5.  I think that's where they pulled the results from that were quoted on the old SMBC official archive on the UIL website before they took it down.

It is where I got it, I wish they would leave these archives up because some results are so hard to find.
