On September 21st, 2019, Point Pleasant Boro Color guard won first place in their division, with a score of 81.6. This will be the team’s second win of the new season. In the previous competition they won, they competed against seven other divisions.  Last year, with sirens blaring throughout the streets, the town was so happy with a win, that the police cars and firetrucks escorted them home.  Although, there was not a special escort after their most recent win, everyone is still very excited to see how the season progresses.

While waiting for the results, sophomore Izzy Mould stated, “I didn’t think we were going to win, maybe come in second place, but not first.”  Despite nerves and self doubt, the PPBHS Color Guard surprised the audience with a score of 81.6. The theme this year is Valley of Kings musical Aida. The costumes are inspired by the Egyptians, with gold outfits, bob-cut black wigs and bedazzled head wear. This year’s color guard and band duo has great potential for an outstanding season.

Although the lengthy practices and performances can be time consuming, joining the color guard at PPBHS has had a positive impact for many members, especially in terms of developing students’ essential skills, such as time management and self-confidence. Mould explained, “I’ve gained so many friends and it’s almost like, a change of personality. While I’m at school, I’m a whole different person and have a whole different mood from when I’m at color guard after school.”
