Carroll Grad Wins Big at Drum Corp International Championship

Andrew Cory, 2016 Carroll graduate and former Dragon Band member, recently won the World Championship at the Drum Corps International Championship final in Indianapolis, Indiana. Andrew is a member of the 1st-time champion Bluecoats.

The Bluecoats organization was founded in 1972 as an outreach program of the Canton, Ohio Police Boys’ Club. The corps’ name was chosen in tribute to the city’s retired police officers. Making its competitive debut in 1974, fans traditionally welcome the corps to the field with a signature cheer of “Bloo!” The corps has finished in eighth place or better since 2001, earning silver and bronze medals over the last two summers respectively.

Carroll grad Stacy Heitman, class of 2015, finished in 4th place, marching with Santa Clara Vanguard.
