Fire and ice

When Washburn High School Fire & Ice Show Choir Coach Zachary Olson announced that he needed to take time off so he and his wife could have a baby, the team was excited for him but nervous about its future.

Instead of panicking and losing the remainder of their year, choir members rallied and ended their season on a literal high note at the Spotlight Spectacular earlier this month. Fire & Ice won the grand championship in the prep division, the group’s fourth championship in its 29-year history, and capped it with the team’s first-ever Best Vocal award.
