For the first time in 10 years, the Byrnes High School Rebel Regiment can call themselves State Champions! The band claimed the title during its first time competing in the 5A category at the SCBDA championship held at Irmo High School on November 5. The band sealed the title with an overall score of 96.8, the highest score to be given in the 5A division in a decade!
The Rebel Regiment also won its 4th consecutive 5A Upper State Championship, and its 18th overall Upper State title. In addition, they also nabbed awards for overall High Music, High Visual, and High General Effect.
A celebration performance was held in front of hundreds of supporters and community members at Nixon Field, after the champions returned home. To see pictures from that event, check out our Facebook album here.
