Four years since its last triumph at the Drum and Lyre Corps (DLC) competition, the Catanduanes State University Laboratory High School DLC last week proved it still had the ingredients to win again as champion.

Despite having only three days to rehearse its moves, the school’s DLC managed to outshine eight other contingent from others schools in the province and snag the P20,000.00 top prize at the Catanduanes Convention Center.

According to majorette Marianne Angelique Aldea, they spent almost 12 hours in practicing their exhibition from 7:00 in the morning until 8:00 in  the evening to maximize their time. 

“Hindi po talaga namin inexpect na kami ang mananalo kasi konting time lang po yung prinactice namin,” she expressed. “Ang key po namin para manalo is discipline and hardwork.”

San Jose National High School from the municipality of Viga was declared 1st runner-up and received P15,000.00, while Bugao National High School from Bagamanoc won 2nd runner up and earned P10,000.00.

The other entries came from Catanduanes National High School, Bato Rural Development High School, Baras Rural Development High School, San Miguel Rural Development High School, San Andres Vocational School and Catanduanes Colleges-High School Department. They each received a consolation prize of P5,000.00.

The DLCs were judged on the basis of the following criteria: Drum and Lyre Composition or Musicality-50%; Interpretation of Composition- 20%; Overall Performance- 20%; and Costume-10%, for a total of 100%.

Composing the board of judges were Carmel Garcia, tourism promotions officer; Rev. Fr. Nestor Buena, parish priest of Baras; Sarah Chiong, DepEd Catanduanes senior program specialist; Albert Cao and Rizalino Regala. DepEd division supervisor Nelson Sicio handled the competition as chairman as the DepEd Catanduanes sponsored the event in coordination with the Provincial Local Government Unit.

The competition was open exclusively to all secondary schools in the province with a total of not less than 50 members including majorette corps per school to perform the exhibition in not less than five minutes and not exceeding seven minutes including entrance and exit.

The said competition was part of the celebration of the 73rd Catandungan Festival with the theme: “Islang Catandungan: Mas Happy @ 73.” (G.O. Information Unit)
