Throughout the fall Season many different events take place at Cape Fear. Fall sports have been popular and successful. Football, Soccer, Cross Country, Girls Golf and Girls Tennis get much notoriety and a lot of attention. What is sometimes overlooked is our Marching Band and, more specifically, Cape Fear’s Color Guard.

These girls put in huge amounts of effort over the summer preparing and throughout the fall performing at competitions and football games. They help bring the marching band show to life with choreography across the field. 

The Colts took the field for their first competition at Panther Creek. The Color Guard placed 2nd in their 4A class. These ladies gave it their all and performed amazingly even though they didn’t have a full show yet.

For their second and third competition the Marching Colts came in first overall for their class 3A. 

“This was my first season participating with the Fall Color Guard and I can proudly say I left my heart on the field with every performance. After putting in hours of work throughout the summer, every Tuesday and Thursday night and every Saturday morning practice it’s really nice to see all of our hard work paying off,” says 2nd season Color guard member Gretchyn Murphy.

The Cape Fear Colorguard finished their season at their final competition at Midway High School coming in 3rd place in their class of 3A.

While the fall season came to an end the Winter Guard is just starting up. These same girls are putting in their time and energy to perform a show and have it be all about them. No band, just flags, dancing, equipment and emotion from each and every member. 

These girls have given it their all for years so stay tuned to hear about their upcoming winter season and to hear their results from their first competition on January 28th.
