Carmel Bands, Carmel, Indiana

Congratulations WGI Regional Champions!

Carmel World Guard, congratulations on receiving first place in the Scholastic World class at the 2013 WGI Indianapolis Color Guard Regional!

 

 

 

 

The Carmel World Guard and “A” guard had a great weekend at the WGI Indianapolis Regional. The “A” guard placed 6th in their Scholastic A round on Saturday. This great and talented group of girls had a blast watching Finals on Sunday at Warren Central H.S. and were very excited to get in front of a WGI audience for the first time!

The Carmel World Guard dominated the Scholastic World competition this weekend, taking 1st place in both Prelims and Finals, and scoring an impressive 7+ points higher than any other high school guard in the competition. This group of girls has been working so hard for months now and all their training and hard work is paying off!! They are achieving at the highest level.  Many of the audience members and fans of our group can’t stop talking about how talented the girls are and how entertaining and fresh this very technically demanding show — “Full Spectrum” — is proving to be for this year’s team.

We still have 6 weeks until WGI World Championships and competition with other Scholastic groups from all over the country, including the defending Scholastic World Champion: Flanagan H.S. from Florida. We go back to work on Tuesday, putting finishing touches on the show, working changes, cleaning the program, and working on elevating performance levels.

The World Guard had a special guest in the audience this Sunday at WGI Regional Finals: Mr. John Williams, principal of Carmel H.S., who came out to watch the girls compete and show his never-ending support of our program. He was very impressed and proud of the dedication and passion the girls show on and off the floor in representing Carmel H.S.!

Our next competition for World Guard & “A” Guard is IHSCGA State Prelims on March 9th at Decatur Central H.S.
