East Winter Guard heads to state


Follow The Republic:


Twelve students at Columbus East High School have been spending their spring break this week perfecting the sport of the art.

That's winter guard, a competitive activity that combines rifle tossing and flag spinning with synchronized movement and flexibility. It's the off-season version of color guard, a dance commonly seen on the football field during halftime and derived from military ceremonies, that is performed to prerecorded music rather than the sounds of the marching band.

The team will compete Saturday against 17 other schools for the Class A title at the Indiana High School Color Guard Association State Finals.
