Greenwood and Ware Shoals High Schools Take Top Honors at Band Competition

Both Greenwood and Ware Shoals High School Bands travelled to Midland Valley on Saturday, September 29th for the Mustang Classic Competition.  Both schools swept the floor with Greenwood High taking top honors in class 3A for Drum Major, Percussion and Music.  Ware Shoals took top honors in class 1A for Drum Major, Percussion, Color Guard and Music.  Both Schools finished in first place for their division.  The Million Dollar Band from Ware Shoals band was named the Orange Division Champions and the Golden Eagle Band from Greenwood High School was named the Blue Division and Overall Grand Champions.  Both schools were awarded a $500 prize for their accomplishments.

“It was nice to have a Greenwood County Sweep in Aiken,” said Ware Shoals Band Director Christie Hodge.  “Band students work so hard and to be rewarded for their work is extra special.  I am proud of how well the Greenwood County Band directors work together, but our students cheer for each other too.  Both schools were very proud of each other.”
