This weekend the indoor colorguard (Winterguard) group performed their first show. The judges were so impressed with their skill level that they "bumped" the colorguard up a division (more difficult competing group) to Scholastic Regional A.

Congratulations guard. We are proud of you!

DRHS Color Guard

Congratulations to the members of our winter guard on being promoted from the Scholastic Novice class to the Scholastic Regional A class!
.
The WGAZ competitive divisions are determined by skill and experience level. As a brand new winter guard, we entered in the Scholastic Novice division. After our performance at the WGAZ Evaluation Show, the judging committee reviewed videos of our show to determine whether the Desert Ridge Winter Guard had the training and maturity necessary to successfully compete in the next division up. Within 12 hours of our Evaluation performance, our instructors were notified that the judges felt we were ready to move up to Scholastic Regional A! We are all so excited and honored to receive this distinction!
.
At Casa Grande competition, the entire guard will be recognized by WGAZ at the awards ceremony for this great accomplishment!
