This past weekend, the National
Championship of High School A Cappella (NCHSA) competition was
held in Santa Ana, CA and Cheyenne Mountain High
School came home to Colorado Springs with the
West Coast Divisional Title! The female septet,
CRIMSON, topped 5 other groups from California, Arizona, New
Mexico and neighbors Air Academy Inflatable
Misconceptions to take the title and win their place in the
National Championship in Washington DC on May 8, representing all of the West
against Northeast, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, South and Central Division winners.
But their director, Cheyenne
Mountain's Dawn Wisdom says, "They are
definitely ready! Crimson went into the California show
somewhat the underdog, but they never looked back. And I don't think they're
going to now. We're going to DC to win!"
THE CRIMSON GALS
CELEBRATING IN CA
I attended the state/regional
competition in Colorado Springs in February and was immediately impressed by
Crimson's fine work and their confidence in what they
presented. While they may be a little surprised at their big win, I can tell you
they deserved this recognition and the laurels that come with it.
Good luck next month in DC! Tell
us all about it when you get back.
