JHS’ Jamestown Express Takes Home Gold Medal at Northeast Color Guard Circuit Championships

On Sunday, JHS’ Winterguard’s Jamestown Express won the gold medal in Open Class at the Northeast Color Guard Circuit Championships in Brockport, NY. The Express were also given the “Showmanship Award,” which is presented to the guard with the “must see” show of the year. This week, the Jamestown Express is performing at the WGI World Championship in Dayton, OH where they are ranked 12th in the country.

“Our staff has created an incredible show and the students are extremely talented and hard working,” said JHS Winterguard Director, Marc Lentsch. “They draw the audience into the show and it makes for a very compelling performance.”

In addition to the Jamestown Express, two other JHS Winterguard groups also excelled at the championships. Jamestown Expressions, the junior varsity group, took fourth place in A Class, their first year after being promoted after winning A1 class last year. Jamestown Caboose, JPS’ middle school group, won the bronze medal in the Cadet Class.

The Jamestown Express’ Show Me Where It Hurts is directed by Marc Lentsch with show design choreography by Nicholas Boucounis and Shari Bentley. Guard Technicians are Mark and Mike Kearns under Director Emeritus, Carl Vullo.
