Pottsgrove Hosting 1st-Ever Competition Saturday

BLOGGER'S NOTE: The following was provided by the Pottsgrove School District.

Pottsgrove High School will be hosting its first indoor dance, twirler, and color guard competition this Saturday, Feb. 23.

This is the first year that Pottsgrove High School is fielding a competitive indoor color guard.

According to Marching Band Director. Shawn Campopiano, “we have chosen to host a contest again this year to showcase that to the community as well as raise funds that will go toward the expenses of their season and their trip to Wildwood, NJ, for the Atlantic Coast Championships (ACC's) in early May. “

The guard just earned second place this last weekend at Downingtown West High School, and will continue competing through ACC's, where they will go head-to-head against 24 other scholastic color guards for a chance to advance through prelims, semi-finals, and the elite finals competition held in the Wildwood Convention Center.

Their 2019 show is entitled "Starry Starry Night" and is meant to portray not only the aesthetics of Van Gough's painting, but the emotional transformation that comes with changing your mindset from negative to positive. 

The color guard is under the direction of Riley Davenport and Katelyn Guest.

The competition will take place in the Pottsgrove High School Gymnasium. Doors will open by 12:30 pm, the show will begin at 1, and will end with awards at 3. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for children. Children age 2 and under are free. Food and drink will be sold during the entire event.

The show is part of the Tournament Indoor Association's 2019 season.
