Weekly Newsletter #37 | March 2, 2020

Congratulations!

It was a huge weekend for the Winter Drumline and Guard programs! Drumline competed at the WGI Dayton Regional and led the Scholastic A class from wire to wire, taking 1st place in Saturday Prelims and Sunday Finals. All three Guard units competed at TMA Ryle on Saturday--the Open and Junior guards won their classes, and the A Guard took 2nd. They followed this up with a Sunday MEPA competition at the WSU Nutter Center, where both the Open and A Guards won their classes!
