Silver Medalists- NLHS percussion, winterguard and NLMS winterguard

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — North Laurel high and middle schools brought home a combined total of three Silver Medals at week one of the 2014 TriState Marching Arts Championships Saturday at Saint Leon, Ind.

The three teams competed in the Winterguard A-3 Yellow Division, Middle School Jr. Winter Guard and Percussion Scholastic B categories against groups from Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.

The high school Winterguard received high praise from North Laurel High School’s Band Director David McFadden saying, “This is the best Winterguard we’ve ever had at North Laurel High School.” 

Carolyn Truett’s granddaughter Keely Bowling is co-captain of the middle school winterguard and Truett couldn’t contain the pride she felt for her granddaughter’s performance. 

“They did an absolutely fantastic job,” Truett said.  “I’m so impressed with the drum line and both of the drill teams. I’m so proud of the hard work they put into these performances. They were absolutely fantastic.”

McFadden echoed Truett’s praise saying, “These students put so much hard work in to their performances.   They came in on snow days, worked after school and had Saturday practices.  They are a really dedicated group and I’m proud of them.”
