Congratulations to the Smithfield-Selma High School (SSS) Winter Guard on three outstanding performances at the 2017 Winter Guard International Championships
in Dayton, Ohio.
Performing in front of thousands of people and against the top Winter Guard programs in the country, the SSS Winter Guard finished 5th in the world and was the only group to make Open Class Finals after being promoted last season.
Earlier in the season, this same group of students won the gold medal at the Athletic Indoor Association
(AIA) Championships in the Scholastic Open Class. This competition is the equivalent of the North Carolina State Championship for Winter Guard.
SSS Band and Winter Guard Director, Brian Jones, commented, "These students are amazing and deserve to be congratulated on all of their outstanding achievements this season."
