Creekview High School Marching Grizzlies Band Wins First Championship
The Creekview High School Marching Grizzlies marching band recently was named the Grand Champion Band at the Sound of Silver Marching Invitational competition, which is the first marching championship in the band’s history.
The Marching Grizzlies earned the highest score of the competition (95.9) out of all 25 competing bands. Stephen McCarthy, director of bands for Creekview HS, credits this win to the “tremendous work ethic and spirit” among the students, staff and parent volunteers.
“This is a huge honor for a band program, but is particularly special for Creekview, as it marks the first marching championship in the band’s history,” Principal Dr. Adrian Thomason said.
McCarthy will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board at its Dec. 6, 2012 meeting.
Creekview HS Marching Grizzlies student leaders include: Maddie Kaufman, Manoucheca Desruisseaux, Rachel McCardel, Tyler Sexton, Joey Fedak, Ben Fisher, Jessica Poulsen, Kristen Nunez, Evan Barrett, Jimmy Allen, Brad Griner, Tessa Trumbauer, Jacob Morgan, Sydney Solano, Andy Eddington, Erin Waver, Sadie Lockhart and Hannah Davis.
