It's been quite a school year for the Arp High School band.

Thursday, it became a sweepstakes band for the second straight year.

Mr. Chris Cook's bunch earned a first division superior rating in concert (stage band), and in sight reading.  Added to the same distinction they received for marching band in the fall, made them a sweepstakes winner.

The Tigers competed in the UIL concert and sight reading 3A contest Thursday morning at Carthage High School, which hosted the competition for all Region 21 schools in classes 1A-4A.

Three judges judge the concert contest, and three other judges come in to judge sight reading.

Arp received straight one ratings from the judges.
