On Friday April 5th our AHS Varsity Winter Guard performed their final show in the Finals competition at the WGI World Championships in Dayton, OH (University of Dayton). I know those of you who watched live on the internet are so proud of your teammates! Not only did our Guard finish the season in the top 20, they finish the season this year with a NATIONAL RANKING of #11.
This has been an exciting (and busy) week for our team. Our Varsity Guard had to qualify to get to each round. If you fail to qualify for the next round, you go home. No pressure, right?
On Wednesday 138 teams competed. AHS earned second place in their grouping of the first round (prelims) before moving on to the semifinals. On Thursday 64 teams competed for a top-20 spot. AHS again earned second place in their grouping in semifinals. They are the first Winter Guard in Fulton County to earn a WGI finalist spot. And at the end of the night, our amazing team finished #11 in finals. WOW!!
A HUGE thanks to Mr. Jenkins, Mrs. Schlosser, and Mrs. Lukes for their dedication, support, and love of the sport. We are so VERY PROUD of each and every member of our Raider Varsity Winter Guard!!!
Winter Guard ROCKS at AHS! Raider Nation!
