Otay Ranch High School’s Full Effect Show Choir won first place at Oceanside High School’s Sound Off! on April 6, 2018 and second place at Chula Vista High School’s Southern California Show Choir Invitational on Apr. 21, 2018.  

Sound Off! featured different divisions including mixed and women’s. In the intermediate mixed division, Full Effect went against the Showcats of Vista High School, High Voltage from Cypress High School, and Showtime from San Pasqual High School.  

Noreen Arroyo, President of Full Effect and ORHS senior, said winning first place came as a big surprise to the group.  

“We didn’t really know the show choirs we were going up against and we never really seen them before”, said Arroyo. “So it felt really good to win.”  

Arroyo went on to say that there overall was a really positive vibe between the audience and the choirs and she loved the energy everyone had in the room.  

“Everyone was cheering each other on and it was a really fun competition to be at,” said Arroyo.  

The SoCal Invitational featured more advanced groups and Full Effect placed second in the third division. They went against Eastlake’s Center Stage, Helix’s HLX and Los Alamitos’ Connexion.  

“This competition was harder because we knew the other teams were going to be tough to beat but I’m proud of us for getting the placement that we did get,” said Arroyo.  

The Invitational was Full Effect’s last show choir competition for the school year so winning second place made it feel extra special for them.  

Vocal Arts Society has a final bow show on Apr. 27 at 6:30 in Otay’s school theater.
