There was no doubt whatsoever in my mind that the Granite Hills High School Winter Percussion Ensemble would win the PPAACC Championship title today. How could I doubt it? The drumline is amazing!
They have placed first in three out of four competitions. The time they received a second place win - they lost by 1/10th of a point. Wow - goes to show - every single every fragment of a point counts when you are this good.
On Saturday, the team took the floor for a 10 a.m. competition, and by early afternoon - were finally acknowledged as the champions they already knew they were.

Congratulations, Granite Hills High School Drumline, band director Kenny Ormonde and drumline instructors, Ryan Garcia and Cody Clem! You all totally rock! I am so proud of you.
Coulrophobia - fear of clowns - is not the reason drumline ensembles from throughout the Valley, including some from the Los Angeles area, should fear the Granite Hills High School Winter Percussion Ensemble....The real reason? The band is amazing and should be feared!  Click on story below.
