CHS Color Guard Alumni News

Several former Carlisle Color Guard members are in Dayton, Ohio this week to compete in the Winter Guard International (WGI) Championship. Emma Kuykendall, a 2015 graduate, Cheyenne Sweitzer, a 2016 graduate, Amberly Eisenhuth, a 2018 graduate and Maria Smith, a 2018 graduate, are team members of the Westshoremen Indoor Color Guard.

The Westshoremen, under the direction of Ron Massey, Dave Wiley, Shawn Spac and Tim Newlin, is an Independent Advanced Indoor Color Guard team. The Westshoremen team will be performing at the Cintas Center on Wednesday, April 3rd for the preliminary rounds which includes 59 other IA teams from around the world. The top scoring 38 teams will advance to the semi finals on Thursday, April 4th. The finals, on Friday, April 5th, will have the top 15 teams competing for the Championship title. After this week and several more local TIA competitions, the Westshoremen will be traveling to Wildwood NJ to compete in the Atlantic Coast Championships in early May. We wish the best of luck to these former Carlisle Color Guard young ladies at the WGI Championships, and in their future in Color Guard.
