(Franklin, GA) — Heard County High School recently took the Indoor Winds group to the Championships in Cumming, GA on April 14.

The Braves earned the silver medal in the Georgia Indoor Percussion Association Championships and the Bronze Medal at the Winterguard International Southeast Regional Contest.

They competed in the Winds Scholastic A Classification. According to director Eric Vogel, the Indoor Winds program has doubled in size in only its second year of existence.

A second marching band group, the Indoor Winterguard competed in the Southern Association for the Performing Arts Championships in Chattanooga, Tennessee on April 7.

That performance ended their season with a great finish beating out two groups in the Scholastic A Novice Division.

Both groups have been competing in regional contests throughout the state having great success throughout the season. Each group continues to improve and grow in size says Vogel.
