The Edmonson County Winter Guard team led by Captains Amber Davidson, Emma Lindsey, Kaley Hartz, and Destiny Holt performed their 2018 show “Carry On” and placed in 2nd place with a score of 62.92, only 1.36 points shy of first place. The Edmonson County Winter Guard program continues to grow from nine members in 2017 to fifteen members in 2018.
“So proud of the Edmonson County Winter Guard. Today, I had the honor of watching 9 out of 15 members have their first ever color guard experience, and walk away with second place," said Director Autumn Stevenson. "They looked beautiful and are now hungry to continue perfecting our 2018 show. There are great things to come from the 2018 EC Winter Guard. Thank you to all that help and support the Guard as we continue to grow and educate others on what exactly the sports of the arts contain. Without you we would not be able to do what we love!”
The Edmonson County Winter Guard is under the direction of Autumn Stevenson and John Woods II with instructors Amy Tanner, Jesse Katzman, and Emily Vincent. You can follow their progress this season on the SCGC website by clicking here.
