Douglas County High School Winter Guard wins state championship

CASTLE ROCK - This year marks the DCHS Winter Guard’s first undefeated season, thanks to instructors Anthony Mondragon and Danniell Isaac, and band director Nick Bidinger.

The guard worked very hard for this honor, practicing eleven hours or more a week from the beginning of November to the beginning of April, leading up to the Rocky Mountain Color Guard Association State Championships on April 7th. The guard won the championships with a score of 91.9 (out of 100), competing against hundreds of winter guards from across the nation.

“It’s a wonderful feeling, waiting to hear DC’s named being called. Second place is announced, and it’s another school; that realization of what just happened is perfect,” says Mariah Holcomb, senior Captain.

“Guard is a place where we can come together to share a talent we all enjoy,” says Lindsey Hahn, junior member.

“I love that guard is a place where anyone can go and not be judged, where you’re part of a whole,” added Leah Hilleman, freshman member.
