On Thursday, Jan. 31 JV and Varsity Colorguard had a show reveal to the public in the Fine Arts gym. Both teams also competed at the NTCA [North Texas Colorguard Association] competition at Wakeland High School on Saturday, Feb. 2.

Overall, Varsity received third place with a score of 65.390 and JV took home 6th with a score of 60.330.

“The places really don’t matter to me,” varsity member Taylor Pflug said. “It’s all about the scores.”

This year’s varsity show is called “Bloom,” based off American artist Georgia O’Keeffe and her paintings.

“If you look at the floor from up top it looks like one of Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings,” Pflug said.

The JV show this year is called “Bad Luck,” and it represents that bad luck really doesn’t exist.

“We placed 6th in regional A,” JV member Marissa Juarez said. “I feel it doesn’t matter what we placed; we performed and had fun; that was the important part.”

Color guard has also helped all of the members become responsible and focused.

“Guard has taught me time management and responsibility,” varsity member Elizabeth Robles said. “I am who am I today because of guard.”
