Claremore Winter Guard named state champs for 2nd year in a row


The Claremore High School Winter Guard placed first at the Independent Regional A state winter guard competition for the second year in a row. 
The competition titled Ethearel, which means heavenly or celestial, was held March 29 at Westmoore High School in Moore.
Claremore Band Boosters member Amanda Janson said the win was the cherry on top of a nearly perfect season. The team competed in six competitions this year, and took first in five of them.
Students practice twice a week —  four to six hours a day — including many individual hours spent at home.
“We are very lucky to have such supportive band boosters and parents,” said Janson. “Band Booster members pay for competition fees and parents volunteer their time hauling the equipment trailer in addition to many other needs.”
The Claremore Band Boosters Association members are in the process of purchasing the OSSAA state rings. 
Tax-deductible donations can be mailed to CBBA at P.O. Box 2052 Claremore, OK 74018. Checks should be earmarked “state rings.” 
For more information, contact CBBA member Amanda Janson at (918) 688-7478. To make a donation in person, contact John Kirton at (918) 527-8566.
Claremore High School Winter Guard coaches are Ben Spreiter and Murrell Collins. 
This year’s senior captain is Emily Goodman, and junior captain is Ashton Kirton.
