“Colorguard is still about Fun” – The Fleming Contest has a Community Feel
Mr. Adams, the Assistant Band Director at Fleming helped put together the contest, and also teaches several ensembles:
"It was exciting to see positive growth from the competing ensembles. From color guards to percussion units, and the addition of winds groups, the competition offered a variety of performance ensembles which added to the dynamic qualities of the show day." With everyone working towards their seeding at Championships. The competitive realm for the contest proved to be entertaining:
The B Class was the largest class of the day. There were 12 competing ensembles from all over the Northern part of the circuit. Edging out the competition was Oakleaf High School with a score of 72.76.
The AAA class was overwhelmingly close! The top 4 Ensembles of the contest: Fletcher, Bartram Trail JV, Nease JV, and Flagler Palm Coast all within 0.17 of each other. It will be nice to see when these B Class Units meet up again.
Newsome High School continues on their path to an undefeated season with a score of 80.32. What’s interesting about this- is that this ensemble went on first out of 9 competitive A Class Colorguards. Which further affirms the fact that judges compare the class continuously and do not lock their scores. Going on first is not the kiss of death.
