WHS Winter Guard: Congratulations to the 2011 WHS Winter Guard for placing first in the North Texas Color Guard Association Contest Jan. 22 at Arlington Martin High School. The WHS Winter Guard competed against 11 other schools in its classification and placed first with a score of 76.7. The WHS team was also 12 points ahead of the second-place team. Weatherford High School Director of Bands Joe Dolkos said this was the group’s first contest of the year, and they came home with the first place trophy in Regional AA. As a result of this outstanding win, the WHS Winter Guard has been bumped up two classes to Scholastic AAA. Dolkos also congratulated first-year director Ashton Beach (WHS Guard Director and Assistant Band Director at Tison Middle School) on this awesome achievement. The Guard’s next competition will be March 26 at Aledo High School.
