There was no beach vacation this Spring Break for Lake Orion High School’s Winter Percussion ensemble, but the 46 talented students had plenty of fun, capturing the World Championship at the Winter Guard International (WGI) World Championships in Dayton, Ohio.
The Dragons competed against 57 other top scholastic marching percussion groups from across the country and even as far away as Sweden. Their score in the preliminary round was the highest of all ensembles and qualified them for the semi-finals, at which their score was the second highest. In the finals, the Dragons outclassed the opposition with their show entitled "The Shield," winning a World Championship by almost two points, which is a huge spread in this competition.
