Assisting as guard techs are Ansley Thedford, Skyler Hustus, and Callie Wilson, who are members of the ETSU Colorguard Team. This performance-based activity includes choreographed marching, dancing, and spinning with equipment such as flags and prop weapons. The performances have a set theme for each year, with this season’s theme being titled “The Royal Marionette Trading Company”. The team competes with other schools throughout East Tennessee, attending indoor competitions where they perform their show before an audience of spectators and judges. The RCHS Winterguard is halfway into the season so far, having already attended two competitions where they placed 3rd and 2nd in their division. The team has two more competitions left, concluding with the championship at Karns High School on April 1st. They will end their season with a final performance for friends and family scheduled at the high school on April 3rd. The guard is excited for their next performances and hope they continue their success for the rest of the 2023 season.
