On Saturday, February 20, 2016, five Wahoo band students traveled to Elkhorn South High school to compete in the Elkhorn South Band Olympics.
The Band Olympics is a solo and small ensemble competition for band students in 9th and 10th grade. Students are a given a rating by judges and then are ranked. Students that get 1st through 5th place in their instrument category earn a medal. Ratings and medals also contribute to earning a team trophy.
Sydney Holdsworth received a 2nd place medal for 10th Grade Alto Saxophones, Korena Edmonds received a 5th place medal for Bass Clarinet, Payton Carstens received a 3rd place medal for Baritone Saxophone, Cheyenne Moore received a Superior rating, and Katie Pace received an Excellent rating.
Overall, Wahoo took the 3rd place trophy in our division against eight other schools! A job well done for our first time in this competition!
