Coquitlam, British Columbia – June 22, 2013 - Simon Fraser University won both Grade 1 events with straight first-place rankings from all eight judges at the annual BC Highland Games. One listener reported that “Dowco-Triumph Street continues to improve and laid down two strong performances today. The last time that British Columbia had two bands playing this well going into the World’s was 1979 when both Triumph Street and City of Victoria were top six at the World’s.”

Alan Bevan won all three of the Professional solo piping events. SFU-member pipers took all of the prizes except one, and all of the Pro snare prizes went to those in the band.
