The West Coast showed up in full force Tuesday, as Oregon Crusaders (1st, 95.25), Blue Devils B (2nd, 93.85) and Vanguard Cadets (3rd, 93.80) swept the top three spots at the 2012 Open Class World Championship Finals.
Oregon Crusaders win DCI Open Class title
Aug 8, 2012
Oregon Crusaders director Mike Quillen said it feels awesome winning this year's Open Class title. The corps placed second for the past two seasons and won their only other Championship title in 2004 in what was then Drum Corps International's Division III.
Oregon Crusaders' win meant a snap in Blue Devils B's three-year winning streak. Had the corps won the 2012 title, they would have been the second Open Class corps in history to achieve a 'four-peat'. After tying in Prelims, Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets fell behind Blue Devils B by a small margin of 0.05.
