For the second year in a row, Mt. Vernon hosted an Indiana High School Color Guard Association competition--except this time, instead of an invitational, it was the state preliminaries for A Class teams. The event on March 3 featured four rounds, with 34 competitors. Also, a team of special-needs students, Destiny, performed in exhibition.
Of the 34 teams, only 16 moved on to the A Class state finals March 17. The Mt. Vernon varsity winter guard competed in the fourth round and finished in the top 16, locking in a trip to the state finals at Center Grove High School in Greenwood. This is the fourth year in a row that the varsity team has advanced to A Class state finals.
This coming Saturday, the Mt. Vernon junior varsity winter guard will compete in IHSCGA's state finals for Divisional Regional A Class at Center Grove. Good luck, team!
Thanks to director Thomas Thawley and his staff for all their hard work!
