Geelong, Australia – March 1, 2015 – Only seven months after its first practice, the Grade 2 City of Whitehorse Pipe Band of Melbourne, Australia, won its third straight contest, the Victorian Championships at the Waurn Ponds Campus at Deakin University. The band competed against the far more established Hawthorn Pipe Band, also of Melbourne, which won the event in 2014. Built from the remains of the dormant Grade 1 Nunawading / Australia Highlanders Pipe Band, Whitehorse plans to compete in Grade 2 at the 2016 World Pipe Band Championships.
