The San Dimas Drumline

Does winning really matter?

May 19, 2023

 The Drumline had a journey through their season, from getting top three in most competitions to then winning one, they have continuously worked towards a goal. Their main goal was to succeed at their finals

Mr. Beckford, one of the two band directors for the San Dimas Royal Corp, shares his opinion on the drumline’s season, “The drumline’s season was amazing! They did a great job. I wasn’t able to see their first couple of performances, but it was amazing to see the group grow in not only their show but as musicians as well”.

Even though the drumline didn’t as well as they wanted, they weren’t discouraged about it; they were more happy to have the experience of going to finals and giving it their best shot. 

The drumline captain, Liam Luevand, didn’t seem to be bothered by their loss, “I’m not mad we didn’t get first, but I’m happy to have been able to experience finals for my last year. We all put our greatest effort into the last run and as long as we have that effort, I’m more than happy with our last run.” 

Luevand then went on to say that as a senior, he couldn’t be more grateful to perform with the group he did and at the level they did. 

Kianush Zamiri a member of the drumline tells us his opinion on their loss at finals, “ Honestly I’m disappointed who wouldn’t be, but at the same time I’m happy to have made the memories I made with my friends while doing something I love, in my opinion, the memories matter so much more than a trophy that’s just going to sit on a shelf, I’d rather have those memories that I will remember for the rest of my life over any trophy, and doing it with my friends makes these times even more memorable.” 

 Winning is an amazing thing and everybody loves to win and get the 1st place trophy, but the journey along the way with your friends and teammates is always so much more fun and memorable and matters so much more than a trophy and that’s, why the San Dimas Drumline didn’t take the loss to heart but accepted the fact they all tried their hardest and whatever place they got at the end of the day, was just a number.
