The Washington High School Varsity Winter Guard competed in the 2014 Winter Guard International World Championships in Dayton, OH last week. This competition features the finest Winter Guard units from across the country as well as a few units from outside the borders.
The Varsity Winter Guard had the most successful run at Championships to date this year. 125 units participated in the Scholastic A class competition. There was a preliminary contest in which Washington placed first in their Round. Their placement in the preliminary event made them eligible for the Semi-Final Divisional contest. Washington placed 3rd in the Imperial Division of Semi-Finals. The top 15 scoring units in Semi-Finals were eligible to move on to Finals on Friday evening.
For the first time ever, Washington received a score making them eligible to participate in the Scholastic A Finals. They placed 13th in the Finals competition.
This accomplishment is a result of the tremendous hard work and dedication of the fourteen members and staff of the Winter Guard. Congratulations to KC Welch, Abi Brown, Kristen Bretzke, Maddie Heinrich, Aly Manhart, Cassie Lieber, Brady Eaton, Ella Huxel, Ryan Poertner, Michaella Williams, Grace Sullentrup, Claire Heinrich, Beth Kleekamp, and Sara Bretzke.
