Meet two of our Color Guard members

 

Kylie Fleck (freshman)

Why did you choose Color Guard?

…. because my sister started teaching me flag in 7th grade and I thought it might be fun.

 

What’s the most important thing you’ve learned from taking Color Guard?

…that if you don’t work as a team you’ll never get to where you want to be.

 

What moment will you remember most from your time in CG?

I’m not really sure because it’s my first year but I will definitely remember making final at Denton and experiencing that with all my friends.

 

What are you excited about for CG for next year?

I’m excited about our marching show next year and I’m hoping I will be challenged and I hope I get to do weapon.

 

Who do you admire?

I admire my older sister because even though she’s not doing guard next year she still practices at home and gives it her all.

 

What’s your favorite music?

Country and pop or maybe a mix specifically Dan + Shay

 

 

Kenny Tan (senior)

Why did you choose Color Guard?

I chose to do color guard because ever since my freshman year when I saw the color guard perform for the first time I was mesmerized by how beautifully the different types of equipment and the body move in correlation to each other. I soon realized that color guard is not something that you can pick up in a day and I really enjoy the challenges that I have to face in this activity and since then I fell in love with the activity.

 

What’s the most important thing you’ve learned from taking CG?

The most important thing that I learned in color guard is patience and that making mistakes is okay. Before I joined color guard I was the most impatient person in the world. But I learned that it takes a lot of time to learn a certain skill and be consistent in it. I also learned that making mistakes is okay, it’s just how you react to the mistake that is important to the outcome of everything else that comes after it.

 

What moment will you remember most from your time in CG?

The most memorable moment of my time being in color guard was the day of my first winter guard competition. I was extremely nervous and I was panicking the whole day. Luckily, I had my friends on the team there to support me. When it was time to perform, I had a pretty decent run, until it came to my solo toss and I nearly hit the announcer.

 

What will you do next year?

I am planning on going to school to be a PTA and I’m hoping to come back and tech for the Clements color guard and maybe join DCI and WGI groups.

 

Who do you admire?

The one person I really admire is Coach Martin. I admire his love and passion for this activity. I hope to be like him one day and be able to lead my own color guard.

 

What’s your favorite music?

I’ll listen to anything.
