Carolina Crown became a World Class World Champion for the first time in drum corps history Saturday, Aug. 10, as the 2013 DCI World Championships concluded at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Not since 1996 has DCI named a first-time World Champion, and never before has it had a Champion that started as an Open Class/Division II corps.

The South Carolina corps’ 2013 production “E=mC2” led them to victory, taking home a final overall score of 98.30 and caption awards for Visual Performance, Brass and General Effect. “For Crown coming from Division II way back when, it's unbelievable,” Crown executive director Jim Coates said. “It shows that anyone can come from the last place we took our first year out. [This season] is not so much about the win, it's about the experience of excellence and teaching the kids.”

Finishing in second, 2012’s World Champion, Blue Devils (98.05), earned top honors in the Color Guard caption. The Cadets (3rd, 96.95) took home the bronze medal with their production “Side by Side.”
