MSBOA Solo & Ensemble Honors

Date:  April 19, 2021

This year's MSBOA Solo & Ensemble competition may have looked a little different—performances were recorded and submitted virtually—but our students were still able to put together some amazing performances. Congratulations to our flute trio (Andrea Bolt, Bridget Donovan & Hailey Siwek) and trombone duet (Brady Patterson & Jacob North) for earning MSBOA medals at the state level!

Special congratulations to Juliana Bolinger for her top rating of 1 (alto sax solo) and for being selected as an Outstanding Soloist with her nearly perfect score in the Proficiency 1 scoring rubric. This is an honor that typically only 100 members in the entire state get to enjoy. In fact, only 18 students in West Michigan were selected. Juliana joins a prestigious list of recent WC students to receive this rare and coveted honor: Maggie Camp (alto sax), Matt DiCosola (alto sax), Bridget Eshlemen (flute/piano), Madeline Mitchell (trombone) and Alec Ockaskis (percussion).

As a band, West Catholic received straight ones for the fourth straight year! Congratulations to the West Catholic Concert Band & Jazz Band for, once again, putting together incredibly successful performances.

Competitive Cheer Coach Named All-District Coach of the Year

This year, our cheer team brought their best to the mat every competition and eventually placed 6th overall at Regionals! With another successful season under her team's belt, WC Coach Anna Ramirez was named All-District Coach of the Year by the Competitive Cheer Coaches Association of Michigan! This award is decided by a vote from the coach's peers in their designated district and highlights Coach Ramirez's dedication, sportsmanship and accomplishments. Congratulations!
