Winterguard Brings Home the Gold

Congratulations to the Hillgrove High School Varsity Winterguard! One week after winning the Hillgrove Winter Classic, the guard traveled to Chattanooga to perform in the McKenzie Arena at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga during the annual Southern Association of Performing Arts (SAPA) Championships (essentially, the state championships for winterguard.)

The guard had a wonderful run of their show, “Never as It Seems” for the crowd. Competing in the AAA class, the guard was up against 13 others from around the state of Georgia. After a VERY long wait, and a tense retreat waiting for the scoring, the Hillgrove Winterguard was awarded their 3rd SAPA Championship in five years, with a score of 78.2.

After a one year hiatus, we could not be happier with the growth and progress of the guard program. Congrats to the students and their staff for a great year and many thanks to the parents who helped all season get their guard to and from their contests.
