Eastwood Band Advances to State

Brian Myers

The Eastwood High School Concert Band qualified for state when they earned a superior rating at the Ohio Music Education Association District Large Group Adjudicated Event on March 3 at Sylvania Bowling Green HS. The Band is directed by Brian Myers and Jonathan Roode.

The superior rating of a “I” (one) is earned for "an outstanding performance, with very few technical errors and exemplifying musical expression. This rating is reserved for the truly outstanding performance," according to the OMEA rating description.

At large group, bands perform three prepared pieces. One of the pieces is required to be from an OMEA list of music. This piece determines the band's class. This year the Eastwood Band competed in class C.

The three prepared pieces are performed for a panel of three judges. Each judge rates the group from I to V. The band then goes immediately to another room for sight reading. The band is given a new piece of music. After only six minutes of study, they perform the new piece for one additional judge, who assigns them a rating from I to V. The four scores are averaged for a composite rating. Eastwood earned three “I’s” on prepared pieces and a “I” in sight reading (best possible scores), for an overall rating of “I”. Eastwood was one of two bands from a field of 18 class C bands to earn straight “I” ratings.

The Eastwood High School Concert Band will travel to Findlay for State OMEA competition April 28.

Varsity cheerleading

The cheerleaders have come a long way since their first practice in August.They have had a very busy Fall season. The girls are now finishing up their first season by cheering on the Varsity Football Team. The girls have cheered all ten Friday night games, and are more than excited to be cheering for them during the playoff season. Also during this fall season the girls have volunteered their time at Otterbein portage Valley for their annual Trick-or- Treat. Varsity Captains Sydnee Shanks, Aaliyah LeValley, and Stacey Cooper- Bowen really feel that the community service brings the team together. It is a great opportunity to help the community with their cheerful attitudes. They are really excited for the next events to come.

Although the girls will continue to cheer for the football team on their winning streak they will be switching their practices over to begin cheering for the Boys Basketball team. The girls have a ton to do in order to prepare for the long winter sport season. They will need to prepare a new starting line up, and run through. They girls will also be preparing for their annual Jump Over Cancer. Every year they hope to take the event to a whole new level, and hope to raise more money than previous years. The cheerleaders will also be participating in other community service activities.

Wish the cheerleaders good luck in their busy busy upcoming schedule!
