Barton Middle School’s Bobcat band program scored 25 chairs in the All-District Band, qualifying 17 of those members to audition for All-Region, then claimed 11 chairs and three alternates to that honor. Barton Band Director BJ Sager noted it was “the most students placing in the District and Region bands that we’ve had in the past 10 years.”
Bobcats named to All-Region were Lynn Huynh, Carl Ferguson, Kaitlyn Redwine, Genesis Garcia, Abigail Percy, Daniel Bergmann, Alena Hernandez, Andy Consoli, and alternates Saddie Bedwell, Rachael Adams, and Caden Morales. Other members that auditioned at the Region level included Maddie Kincaid, Jessica Bourland, Omar Guzman, E.J.Major, Conrad Rose and Jay Bera.
All of the above initially earned All-District honors, where they were joined by Ivan Guzman, Vivian Goldman, Megan Kelnar, Ethan Miller, Jordan Warren, Philip McDonald, Lily Anna Nichols, and Michael Hernandez.
