St. Andrews Pipe Band finishes 2nd at Charleston

Charleston, S.C. – The St. Andrews Presbyterian College Pipe Band took second place in the Grade III Pipe Band Competition at the 39th Annual Charleston Scottish Games Saturday.

“The St. Andrews Pipe Band was beaten by a much larger and clearly superior Atlanta Pipe Band on Saturday,” said Pipe Major Bill Caudill. “As this is a re-building year for the band, I was pleased that we were able to field a group representing St. Andrews who could remain competitive in our currently assigned grade level. Everyone has worked hard over the past three weeks to prepare for this performance.”

St. Andrews senior Matt Poletti earned 4th place in the Grade III March solo competition.

The band has a goal of improving on all results at the Scotland County Highland Games Oct. 1, and the Stone Mountain Games in Georgia on Oct. 15.

“I am proud of the efforts of the student members of the band, as well as the contributions of our alumni/community members who are enabling us to remain on the circuit this academic year,” said Caudill. “We'd like to invite everyone out to support the band here in Laurinburg on October 1 for our local Highland Games as we hope to build on our first competitive performance of last weekend.”
