WAXAHACHIE — A first-place ranking Oct. 27 in the Region 13/26 marching band contest is sweet music for the Burnet High School Esprit de Corps, which is headed to state.
"We’re going in as the top seed," said band director Kevin Heckaman. "We’re going in as the No. 1 seed from our region."
Burnet was one of 28 bands at the weekend regional event, where two of three music judges placed it first.
