SAU Pipe Band finishes second at Charleston Scottish Games

The St. Andrews University Pipe Band finished second in a tiebreaker at the Charleston Scottish Games over the weekend.

“The band got first and second in piping, second in ensemble and first in drumming,” said Pipe Major Bill Caudill. “This tied us with the Atlanta Pipe Band, but the ensemble placing breaks the tie.”

The Grandfather Mountain Highlanders finished third.

This first competition of the fall season for the band also yielded strong finishes in individual competition.

In Grade II Piping Piobaireachd, Stuart Marshall was first with Patrick Johnson fourth. Olivia Thoroughman, Patrick Johnson and Marshall finished third, fourth and sixth in Grade II Piping March/Strathspey and Reel. Thoroughman came back with a first place finish in Grade II Piping Hornpipe and Jig, just ahead of Marshall in second and Johnson in fifth.

In Grade III Piping, Evan Johnson finished second in Piobaireachd. Joe Calvo and Evan Johnson finished third and fifth in Grade III Piping March. Johnson was first in Strathspey and Reel with Calvo fourth.

In Grade III Snare Drumming, Jack Donohue was first with Regina Drake-Parguey second. Drake-Parguey added a second place in Amateur Tenor Drumming with Alina Dowell fourth.

The Pipe Band will be performing locally at the Scotland County Highland Games the first weekend in October.
