Following the stage performance, the band also competed in the sight reading portion of the competition where a new piece of music is presented to the group with a set time to learn it. The ensemble is evaluated on preparation and performance of the piece under the brief time period.

The Pride of Heavener received an excellent rating for their stage performance and an excellent rating for their sight reading performance.
