The Mustang Guard has had an amazing marching band season this year, and we are excited to continue our growth into the winter guard season! As the marching rehearsals are ending, the team will begin transitioning into our winter guard prep schedule. Once a week starting in Nov, then twice a week in Dec.
In the spring semester, guard will be in 2nd period for class and after school for rehearsals. Performance and competition dates have been published to the band calendar and can be found on the winter guard page too. GO GUARD!
