|Holley color guard from New York had to once again settle for the runner up position at 93.10. They changed musical styles this year and consistently awed the crowd of
approximately 4,000 with their variations catching equipment behind their back. The finale
of the show featured the entire guard performing with sabres and again catching them
behind their backs. Holley's performance was slightly less exciting only because they had
to follow the driving shows of both the Cavaliers (immediately preceding them) and the
St. Patrick's Shramrocks. Nevertheless, the Holley guard is an outstanding example of
superior class and show design.|
The crowd loved the Cavaliers and the Cavaliers loved hyping for the crowd. They had one of the most driving and innovative shows on the floor this year and they never failed to get the fans up on their feet. A very strong third at 92.70 speaks well of this program and a consistency that should carry this guard well into the future.
|St. Patrick's Shamrocks brought back their popular Broadway-style show from last year,
expanding on it and entertained the WGI crowd all the way. I understand this guard did
not perform with the same enthusiasm that they had demonstrated earlier this season, but
the still had the support of the audience and their fifth place finish at 90.07 was defiantly
nothing to be ashamed of.
The Connecticut Skylarks turned their show concept around and came back this season with mew uniforms and a highly enjoyable package. While their 1979 show did nothing but drive, drive, drive... this year's "book" included many varied moods and drill/equipment highlights. Sixth spot with 89.27.
