CHS Drum Line and Flag Corps Compete at CMU
Wednesday, October 12, 2011
The CHS drum line and flag corps participated in a competition at CMU in Fayette, Saturday, Oct. 1. There was a lot of excitement and anticipation about what the day would bring,
“Our first competition is always nerve wracking,” said Missi Olsen, senior flag corps member.
Three students participated in the flag team. They practiced three times the week prior, and performed to World of Warcraft part I. Some people were absent from this 3 event. So last minute adjustments provided an additional challenge.
“It is a good experience,” said Stacey Davis, CHS Flags Coach.
The students were accompanied by Davis. The bus left at 9 a.m. Saturday morning. The drum line performed at noon and the flags performed at 12:30 p.m.
Fifteen students participated in the drum line. They had been working on their piece since school started in August. The song they performed to was Jaguar.
CHS did not walk away with the rankings they had hoped for, but they left eager to try again next year.
Both groups perform regularly with the Pinto Pride Marching Band, but they also perform individually throughout the school year.
