Blue Devils win 15th World DCI Title

News item from Drum Corps International

Blue Devils completed an undefeated season Saturday, Aug. 11, winning their 15th Drum Corps International World Championship, their fourth in the last six years.

With a final score of 98.70, the California corps also took home hardware from Lucas Oil Stadium for caption awards in Visual Performance, General Effect, Percussion and Color Guard. 

Blue Devils corps director David Gibbs said although he can't rank how this title compares to the corps' 14 others, he can say the 2012 corps is one of the best performing ensembles he's ever had. 

"We're just blessed," he said. "We're thankful that the whole activity is going great. This is one of the best ensembles we've had." 

With her fifth and final year under her belt, color guard captain Rachel Silva has seen the Blue Devils win three World Championships in that time. Silva was especially proud of what her color guard section accomplished. 

"This is our fifth guard title in a row," Silva said. "I'm very excited. All five years I've been here we've taken color guard, and that is a huge honor."
