MEDINA – The 2016 Winter Guard season came to a conclusion on Saturday when the North East Color Guard Circuit held their championships at SUNY Brockport.

Forty guard units from Central and Western NY and Canada competed in 8 classifications. The ARC of Yates performed in exhibition. This guard consists of individuals with developmental disabilities but when they get on the floor to perform, their enthusiasm captures the audience’s attention and admiration.

In the Cadet class Medina competed against 10 other guards and came in 6th with a score of 67.44.  In the Scholastic A class Medina’s Varsity guard competed against five other units and came in 3rd with a score of 80.92.

The Cadet Guard lines up for the award ceremony.

With the WG season concluding, the band already started practicing for the Spring Street Band season. The band will travel from April 19 to April 24, first to Georgia for a performance at the Westminster Academy. From there the band heads to Florida to perform in the Grand Parade at the Magic Kingdom.

Closer to home the band will compete in the Seneca Falls Pageant on May 21, the local Memorial Day parade, and then at the Gorham Pageant of Bands on June 5.
