Westlake High’s varsity Winter Guard team wins multiple accolades

Westlake High School’s varsity Winter Guard team has bested school records by winning a bronze medal in the 2022 Color Guard International Competition in Dayton, Ohio, April 7-9. This was the highest award a Westlake Winter Guard team has ever won.

The achievement was preceded by a first-place finish in the Texas Color Guard Circuit State Championship in March.

Varsity, JV and middle school teams known as Cadets perform as the Color Guard with Westlake’s marching band in the fall and are also known as the Elite Visual Ensemble. When football season is over, they train for Winter Guard.

These programs are known as “The Sport of the Arts” because artistry is combined with athleticism and expressed with flags, rifles and sabers, all set to music.
