Little Elm HS Scholastic Open 2020 WGI Austin Finals
It was a very somber moment when we learned that the remainder of the NTCA and WGI seasons had been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. These students had worked diligently to improve and perfect their winterguard show. In fact, when the news came about the cancelation, the LEHS Winterguard had just won (1st Place - Open Class) the WGI Austin Regional and was ranked 3rd by WGI. These student performers, as well their director, Ms. Zotti, were eager to see how they would finish the season. Please enjoy the video above of the LEHS Winterguard's amazing performance at the WGI Austin Regional.
