Have you heard of the new club that takes place in the band room after school? Color guard is not only fun but you get to meet new people, learn how to toss a flag, rifle, saber, and dance.

Color guard is under the direction of head coach Orlando Franco and assistant coach Cynthia Najera. “I learned that the students that auditioned have so much raw talent that I’m going to be able to morph them into great world class performers and bring Godinez up to a whole new level they’ve never been to” said Franco.  

Maria Perez, a junior said, “It’s a place where you not only learn new techniques and skills but it’s also a place where you make lasting friendships.”

“I am excited that students came out and decided to try something new and that we now have a guy on the team. I hope other guys and girls take that chance as well,” said Perez.

Perez is the current captain along with Jimena Razo. Razo believes, “Color guard is a challenging experience. I joined the team with no color guard experience or dance experience. It was very difficult but with practice I got the hang of it.”

“I’m a awkward person when it comes to working with new people because I’m not very open and quiet as well. I just hope I will be able to talk more with the new members and communicate with them better,” said Razo.

As auditions ended the team now has 48 girls and two guys. The color guard team won 4th place in their first ever championship in Huntington Beach. Franco said, “At first I was pretty bummed because we didn’t get the medal, but I thought about how far we’ve came from marching season till now. I’m glad that we got 4th place cause it forces the vets to work even harder because they were so close yet so far from that 3rd place medal.

The team will soon begin to practice two weeks before school starts. From practices beginning 9:00 am to 9:00 pm or 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The team will have a twelve hour practice Monday – Friday except Wednesday. The team will have a four hour practice on Wednesday.
