Forsan band state bound

FORSAN — The band will play on.

You must excuse Forsan High School Band members if they seem a little busy this week — they are cramming for one big final test.

For the seventh time in the past 15 years, the FHS band will take its act to the highest level as it competes in the University Interscholastic League State Marching Contest, which will be held Monday in San Antonio's Alamodome.

Forsan punched its ticket for another state trip in convincing fashion over the weekend, besting 17 other bands to take top honors at the Class 2A Area Contest at Lowery Field in Lubbock.
