Congratulations Byrnes Varsity and JV Winter Guards!

This past weekend, both the Byrnes Varsity and Byrnes JV Winter Guards traveled to Winthrop University to compete in the WGI Mid-Atlantic Power Regional. This regional was both guard’s final WGI Regional of the season, and the competitive results were incredibly successful. The JV Winter Guard placed 5th in the Scholastic A Class, the highest placement EVER for the JV Guard at any WGI Regional event. With their results, the JV Winter Guard is currently the #2 ranked winter guard in the state of South Carolina, right behind the Byrnes Varsity Winter guard – which finished in 3rd place in the Scholastic Open class, keeping them ranked #1 in South Carolina and #21 nationally. Congratulations to the performers of the Byrnes Guard Program on their stellar finishes to the WGI Regional season!
