The Winterguard competition season started strong for the North Lamar High School Colorguard. On January 18, the squad competed in Frisco to earn second place following 5A Wakeland High School who placed first. The following week, North Lamar earned first place in Arlington.

These students have been putting a lot of hours of hard work into their show since December and it’s been paying off,” said Colorguard instructor Cristian Gomez. The judges’ comments about the show have been positive. I am excited to see their growth as the season progresses.”

This year’s show is entitled The Pale Blue Dot.” Music includes a rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, a cover of Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World sung by Phil Wickham and excerpts from Carl Sagan’s The Pale Blue Dot.

The North Lamar Colorguard is competing locally in the North Texas Colorguard Association (NTCA) and nationally at the Winterguard International (WGI) Dallas Regional, WGI Tulsa Regional and WGI Southwestern Power Regional. Their season will culminate at the 2020 WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio, in April.
