Ninth St. Singers take top awards at Harvard
Chase County’s 9th St. Singers again took the top awards at Monday’s Cardinal and Black Show Choir Competition hosted by Harvard Public School in Harvard.
The competition drew 12 high school groups and two in junior high.
Director Randy Hayes said the competition is only open to NSAA Class C and D schools. Performing groups were placed into two divisions—Division One for schools with a grade 9-11 enrollment higher than 100 and Division Two for schools with grade 9-11 enrollment less than 100.
The 9th St. Singers were awarded the trophy for Outstanding Vocals for the day, first place in Division One and was selected the Grand Champion group of the day.
This is the third consecutive year Chase County’s show choir has earned those three awards at the Harvard competition, Hayes said.
Bishop Neumann’s Scarlet Nights were selected runner-up.
“It is a really good opportunity for our students to compete with schools in classes C and D and see what others are doing in our smaller classes,” Hayes said.
“Our students performed really well and, again, receiving those trophies is an indication of the day-to-day rehearsal process and their commitment to performance excellence,” he said.
