Indoor Championships

This past weekend, the Black Knight Indoor Color Guard and Percussion Ensemble traveled to Wildwood, New Jersey for the 40th Annual Tournament Indoor Association Atlantic Coast Championships. The event featured over 200 of the top color guards, percussion ensembles, and dance teams from eight states, including Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey.

The BK Color Guard entered the Championship event ranked 16th in a talent-packed conference. After an inspiring semi-finals performance, the guard narrowly missed finals by one tenth of a point. The BK Color Guard did, however, move up two spots and finishes the season ranked 14th in one of the most competitive conferences in TIA.

The Hempfield Percussion Ensemble entered Championship weekend ranked sixth out of 35 high schools. The group worked hard to tweak their show leading into Finals and ended up moving up to fourth place following a highly emotional finals run!
