The Marching Mavericks
The Marching Mavericks competed in the “Spirit of the Cardinal” marcing band competition, hosted by Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology. The band performed well, and received the following awards:
2nd Place Band, Class AA
1st Place: Dance, Class AA
1st Place: Flags, Class AA
2nd Place: Drum Major, Class AA
2nd Place, General Effect, Class AA
3rd Place: Marching & Maneuvering, Class AA
3rd Place: Musicians, Class AA
The Marching Mavericks competed in the Battle of the Bands, hosted by ESPN Charlotte. The band showed off their new style, and while we did not win our size category (the only award given), our dance team placed 2nd in the gym battle that same day.
In 2017, for a number of reasons, the Marching Mavericks did not compete. The main reason was because we transitioned from a “core style” marching band to a “show style” marching band, and we were focused on learning our new style rather than competing.
At the Mustang Classic Competition, the band received 1st place in their division in Music, Marching, General Effect, Percussion, Drum Major, 2nd in Color Guard, and #1 overall winner in their category.
At the Pirate Cove Classic, the band received 1st place in their division in Music, Color Guard, General Effect, Percussion, Drum Major, 2nd in Marching and #1 overall winner in their division. There were 21 bands there from our size to bands with over 200 members (6A). Also, our Drum Major placed 1st, out of all 21 bands – regardless of size or division.
