(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- LRHS Marching Mustangs color guard has a premiere show at 11 a.m. this Saturday at Plant City High School. The color guard has prepared for this show prior to the new year.

They are using a piano version of the song “Too Good at Goodbyes” by Sam Smith. The show will include dance, flag, and weapon work.

There is also a new drill writer, Stephen Alia, who creates a story to tell and visuals for the audience with the song. This is the first time LRHS color guard has participated in winter guard.

The color guard has been working very hard with two to three practices a week. Sophomore Kenzie Horner is excited for winter guard season.

“We are really pushing ourselves this season more than ever,” stated Horner.

LRHS band director Rob Lambert is excited for a fresh start and a new idea to work with.

“I want winter guard to be a positive experience and serve as a catalyst for future success. Also, this helps advance skills for the next marching band season,” he said.

The season will last until April 6 for Florida Federation of Colorguards Circuit (FFCC) Championships.
