During their first competitive season Inertia Independent Winds would go on to win several MEPA events in Independent A Winds class and end the season by winning the Independent A WGI World Championships.

In their 2nd competitive season Inertia Independent Winds competed in both OIPA and WGI events in Independent A class winning several awards in both. They ended their 2016 campaign by winning the Bronze at WGI Winds World Finals.

2017 was a history making year for Inertia Independent Winds that brought much success,  growth and expansion to our award winning program. Through dedication, determination and commitment by our members and staff, new standards and heights were reached that was thought to be unattainable within our class.  Inertia Independent Winds was thrilled to have earned many titles and championships through MEPA and WGI Sport of the Arts in 2017. Top honors concluding the season was earning both Championship titles as the 2017 MEPA Open Independent Winds Champions and the 2017 WGI Winds Class-A World Champions!

2018 brought tremendous growth in both Inertia and all WGI Winds.  Inertia had a very successful season wining many regional competitions and they received the silver medal in Independent A at the WGI Winds World Championships.

2019 was a unique year where Inertia moved up from A to Open Class.The year brought a gold medal at MEPA in Open Class and Inertia won the WGI Power Regional held at NKU.  The season came to a conclusion with a Bronze Medal at the WGI World Championship for their first appearance in WGI Open Class Finals.

As we continue to expand our corps, we will always maintain our passion, integrity and love of the sport and promise to bring new innovative and exciting musical and artistic performances to our audience.  We look forward to 2019 with our Winds ensemble and look forward debuting our newest program Inertia Independent Winterguard!
