Historic firsts as corps jockey for position at Open Class Semis


Blue Saints (16th, 59.40) had a record-breaking season in 2010. Jordan Alvey, battery percussion, summed it up: “We’ve come a long way,” he explained. “We started two months ago, got the music memorized, then learned the drill. They’ve become a group I’m very proud to have taught. It’s been their highest season yet and I’m proud to be a part of that.” The corps’ score is a full four points higher than last year.

Today was a milestone in their long history. Fifth-year mellophone Daniel Faubert said, “We’ve been doing well for our corps this year. We’ve broken record after record set for ourselves. Making Semifinals was a huge thing for us because we’ve never been to the Semifinals ever before.”
