An early start to the Saturday meant practice before competition.
Then the ritual guard transformation--hair, make-up, white spandex, rhinestone jewels....
Repeat Pete says: Color Guard, Color Guard you did it again! You brought the goods to the field each competition--, your "Seasons" is summer cause you are hot and on fire. Sweet feeling of success for a section that has worked so hard for so long to gain the respect of not only the instrument sections of the band but the student body as well. I know their grace and elegance is proving it.
Yep Repeat Pete has a beautiful echo when those eighteen beautiful girls in white spandex take to the field to show their grace and skill.
A Fall day that began with beautiful warm sunshine, that turned to a cold, rainy, gusting wind night did not hinder these 215 kids. No way. They finished the finals with a second place finish, a score of 86.65 and a caption of best music. More smiles.
When the night is all said and done...it's time to "unguard" before heading to bed for a long night's well deserved rest.
Even though M sent me a text from the bus that said "tired of hearing-- 2nd place Lindbergh"...the kids have much to be proud of!
