MEDINA – The 2017 Winter Guard season came to a conclusion on Sunday when the North East Color Guard Circuit held their championships at SUNY Brockport.

There were 42 units from Central & Western NY and Canada competing in 8 classifications.  The ARC of Yates also performed in exhibition.

There were 10 guards in the Cadet class and Medina came in second place. In Scholastic A, there were three guard units and Medina came in second with a score of 82.82.

The students who participated in the Varsity Guard are as follows: 1st row (sitting) – Grace Fuller,  Mikayla Soha,  Alexis Neuman,  Leann Schneider and  Shine Sullinger.  2nd row – Hayley Hurt,  Allyssa Beyer,  Sabrina Quiros,  Morgan Allis,  Brianna McMullen and  Sarah Goodin. 3rd row – Alyssa McMullen, Avery Vanderwerf, Danielle Schmidt, Kyra Baes and Kaela Grosslinger. Back row: Paige Martin, McKenna Callard, Talishiona Feitshans and Laura Washak.

The Winter Guard students have been working hard on their shows since November.

“We must also give credit to the ‘Prop Boys’ consisting of Moms and Dads who worked hard at building props for both groups and then hauling them around to practices and to competitions,” said Kathy Dreyfus, public relations manager for the Winter Guard and Medina Mustang Band. “The students themselves also assisted in getting props set up before a show started and removing them afterwards, all within the 7 minutes allowed for each performance. Work has already begun preparing for the Spring Street season.”

First place winners on Sunday in each class were: Cadets, Victor;  Regional A, Patriots Too with a score of 83.61;  A1 class, Lancaster with a score of 83.54;  SR, Magic of Scout House with a score of 77.65; IA,  Lancaster Independent with a score of 88.14; SA – Gates with a score of 84.71; SO, Phoenix with a score of 84.50; and IW, Luminosa with a score of 78.
