Summit Jaguar Marching Band
The Summit Jaguar Marching Band has a tradition of excellence. Under the direction of Chris Kanicki, the band's 2016 show 'Escape from Plano's Cave' was extremely competitive during the marching season.
Summit Band took first place at the Mansfield Preview of Champions competition and earned caption awards for best music, best marching and best soloist. The band was also well-received at the other contests during the 2016 marching season - placing third at Midlothian, fourth at Carrollton and third at the Wylie Marching Invitational. The colorguard, under the direction of Nicole Neugent, took first place in both prelims and finals at the Wylie Marching Invitational.
In addition to its marching success, the Summit band program has a history of producing individual musicians who consistently win spots in the All-Region and All-State bands.
