Wanted to share pictures from Lower State...which took place in Charleston this past weekend. Each year, South Carolina is divided into upper and lower state (preliminary competition) - and then into classes according to school size 2A-5A. The top 6 from each class (in each division) qualify for finals - State.
This is the Silver Spirit Guard from Silver Bluff High School...the defending 2A Lower State and State Champions (2005 & 2007). The girls had a pretty solid performance, and the band placed 3rd out of 14 bands. So they, along with the 5 other qualifying 2A bands from Lower State, will be competing against the top 6 2A bands from Upper State. We'll be working this week to be sure the final performance this weekend --> is the best of their entire season; it's time to peak! Proud of this group's work ethic & discipline...always willing to put in extra time + the entire band was out in the rain until 9pm Friday night.
