"It's been a long journey for the new Winter Guard program at Chilhowie High School. I am proud that the kids have pushed themselves to progress and succeed; they have worked as a team, and have been very successful in all of the competitions. I believe the kids put on an amazing show and kept the crowd thoroughly entertained. What we lacked in experience, we maked up for in enthusiasm and character!" commented instructor Theo Ganaway.
The winter guard will be attending their last competition on March 21st, 2015 at J.F. Byrnes High School in Duncan, SC. This will be their toughest competition yet as they will be competing against nine other units including Chase High School, Smoky Mountain High School, Landrum High School, Lugoff‐Elgin Genesis, East Henderson, TL Hanna High School, Byrnes High School, Asheville High School, and Dobyns‐Bennett High School Junior Varsity.
