The 2018-2019 school year has been an exciting time for the Eastland High School Color Guard. After many years without a guard, the 2018 marching season opened with the stunning addition of a six member Color Guard team. Following the show design of Mike McGehee and under the direction of Shelley Rinehart, the team absolutely blew us away, winning many distinctions at marching contests throughout the marching season.
As the season drew to a close, the decision was made to do something that has never been done in Eastland ISD—develop a Winterguard program, giving students the opportunity to continue to refine their skills while competing as part of the North Texas Colorguard Association. Mike McGehee once again stepped in to choreograph a show, and the kids took off! With each competition, the team of eleven continued to grow, earning a higher score each time. The season came to a conclusion on Saturday, March 9 with the championship competition in Mansfield, Texas. The Eastland High School Winterguardcompeted against 4A and 5A schools and brought home the silver medal!
We hope you will join us for a season wrap up exposition at Marshal Gym on Monday, March 18 at 6:30.
Eastland Winterguard Team: Andy Nguyen, Kaycee Clark, Kagin Dove, Yexalen Ortiz, Laisha Hoil, Claudia Alaniz, Macey Fortenberry, Leslie Palacios, Danielle Coyote, Justice Dove, and CJ Chaney.
