The sound of flags twisting in the air could be heard Sat. Jan. 31, and the color guard competed against other schools from the area in one of their first competitions of the season. The guard placed first with a score of 62.230, over 7 points higher than the second place team.
“The girls did phenomenal this weekend,” senior Stephanie Langford said. ” They all got into performance mode and rocked their show.”
The routine the girls did this year is more of a personal routine than others they have done in the past. They perform to Eminem’s song Lose Yourself.
“[It’s] about losing yourself in the moment,” sophomore Rachel Junau-Zimmerman said. “We are putting ourselves out there and doing what you can.”
While the results show the team as being the best at the competition, those who performed believe there is room for improvement in preparation for their next events.
“Overall as a performance, it was ok,” senior Adriana Gonzalez said. “It wasn’t as good as it should have been, but it was [decent].”
Tougher competitions are ahead for the group, competing against schools from all over the area. The dynamic of the group is what is key in how the upcoming events will turn out.
“The team is very strong,” Langford said. “[They keep] pushing each other to do their best.’
