"Mad" Dash to Prom - Madrigal Group to Compete at State Finals Shortly Before Prom


by Justine Christian
   For the first time in Mooresville High School history, the Spads (Spotlighters/Madrigals) have made it to the State Finals. The event will take place Saturday at Pike High School. 
   According to choir director Jason Damron, this is a huge accomplishment and something the concert choir has been working towards for the past few years. They competed this past weekend against approximately 60 choirs and have been selected as one of the top 16 in the state.
   There is only one problem – this Saturday is also Prom. Spads perform at 4:30 p.m. and Prom doors open only three hours later, at 7:30 p.m. Most of the choir members have planned on attending both.
   It’s stressful, but it’s an honor,” junior Jacob Tooley said.
   This means that they will have less than three hours to get ready; however, some girls have been planning around the shortened time.
   I’m getting my hair and makeup done before the performance so I can rush back to Mooresville for pictures afterward,” junior Haley Wyble said.
   Regardless of the high-stress situation, choir students are filled with excitement for the upcoming big day.
   “When we first thought about making State, it made me really stressed out for the day of Prom,” junior Rachel Wathen said. “Once we actually made it, I realized that I don’t care that it’s on the same day.”
