Victorious 'Devils' from Amador Valley

Eleven students from Amador Valley High School were among the 140-plus members of the 2010 Blue Devils B Corps drum and bugle corps based in Concord who won this year's championships in Indianapolis: (l-r) Hugh Huynh, Whitney Herne, Chris Opperwall, David Xenakis, Ian Toy, Alex Richter, Ufkun Erdin, Brian Pratt, Lauren Brown, Scott Opperwall, and Brandon Smart. Not pictured is Jordan Rasmussen, an Amador senior who was a member of Blue Devils A Corps.

Blue Devils B competed in the Drum Corps International competitions this summer first in California and then in Indianapolis, where they took first place and became World Champions of the Open Class of Drum Corps International on Aug. 14.

The Amador Valley members of the Blue Devils are shown standing in front of Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis after winning the World Championship. They are all wearing their gold medals, and six of the 11 are wearing two gold medals because they also were in the World Championship corps in 2009.
