EAST MARLBOROUGH — The Unionville High School Indoor Color Guard placed first in the Scholastic Novice Division of the Cavalcade Indoor Association’s Championship Competition on Saturday, March 31, 2012 at Quakertown High School in Quakertown, PA.
The UHS Guard competed against seventeen other teams and earned the winning score of 85.9 out of 100. Performing to “Space” by NOA, their energetic show combined dance with a variety of equipment work including flags, sabres and rifles. The Color Guard is under the direction of Mary Litzenberg, Kristen Neel, Jen Hilbish, and Woody Kleintz. Student captains are Danielle Heher and Sarah Gomez.
This is the Guard’s third season of indoor competition and they are three time Cavalcade Champions of their division. During the fall season the Color Guard competes as part of the Unionville High School Marching Band.
The Cavalcade Indoor Association was formed in 1971 and is a division of the Cavalcade of Bands Association, Inc. It provides a marching style activity during the winter months beginning in February and ending in April. The resulting shows are color guards, drill teams, and percussion units that incorporate elements of dance, theater, marching, and choreography with the use of equipment. The result is a representation that is exciting, and filled with the demands of precision and visual requirements. Shows take place in high school gymnasiums.
