The LBJ Advanced Orchestra had been preparing for state competition since January, and all their hard work paid off when the group placed first in the recent NMAA State Orchestra contest at Volcano Vista High School, winning the middle school division and equaling the marks of the highest-performing high school in the process.

 

"There were three judges and our scores were 97, 98, and 99 (out of 100 points)," said Orchestra teacher Karen Schindwolf. "They did everything right. They were focused, they listened to each other and performed beautifully as a group."

 

The orchestra played "Ocean Storm" by Antonia Vivaldi and "For the Star of County Down," a medley of Irish folk tunes.

 

"Judges graded us on playing in tune, playing together, technique, interpretation and style, among other things," Schindwolf explained. "They really rose to the occasion to demonstrate what superior musicians they really are.

 

"This is a close-knit group. I am so proud of these students and the heart they put into playing each and every day. A big thank you to all of them!"

LBJ added another city title to its packed trophy case early this year as Coach Paul Romero's seventh and eighth grade girls won the city tournament and finished the season with a perfect 12-0 record.

 

"The girl's played outstanding basketball and never gave up, even when they struggled in a couple games," Romero said. "The biggest challenge was trying to keep players healthy and injury free, because several girls also play on club teams."

 

Providing leadership for the team were team captains Amelia Gallegos, Giannah Aragon, and Eboni Winfield -- all eighth graders. Winfield also received the Barb Anderson award for outstanding academics, leadership, and multi-sport participation.

 

Other members of the team were: Sydney Jaramillo (8), Ariana Zajac (8), Iliana Encinias (8) Tiana Bowman (8), Julianna Navarrete (8), Jill Sims (8), Savannah McGuire (7), and Angelyn Aranda (7).

 

Special thanks go out to assistant coach David Gallegos and all the parents and fans for their support.
