CHARLESTON — The high school's Maximum Forte did not place in the semifinals of the international competition over the weekend.

The a capella group made their way up to Wisconsin for the semifinals of the International Championship of High School A Cappella Saturday in the Pabst Theater, in Milwaukee, but did not end up in top spots in the competition and will not advance to finals, according to results online.   

The results show three Wisconsin schools took the top three spots this year. Maximum Forte members were also not chosen for category awards in the competition, including Outstanding Soloist, Outstanding Vocal Percussion, Outstanding Arrangement and Outstanding Choreography.

Maximum Forte singer Sterling Stowell took home awards for best vocal percussion and best arrangement in the quarterfinals a couple of weeks ago. 

Before their latest foray in the quarterfinals, their best finish was last year. Maximum Forte finished third at that stage last year, one spot away from advancing to the semifinals.
