Heather Bishop explains, “Color guard is an experience like no other. You become so close to every member that you feel like family. You share a bond that no one else could ever understand looking into our group. It’s a way to forget about all the stress of school and all the problems you have outside of guard. You come into a very loving and supporting environment.” Freshman member Caley Gastineau says, “When I heard Coffee County being called out for first place I first thought it all was a dream. Coffee County hasn’t won something in a while, and I felt so special to be apart of something so amazing.”

Team members include captains, Heather Bishop and M. E. Spradley, along with Alyssia Ferrell, Haleigh Lorance, Emily Alviar, Jessica Parnham, Bailey Roye, Regan Crouch, Chelsey Bailey, Caley Gastineau, Katrina McCullough, and Loren Hanson.

 Congratulations to Coffee County Winter Guard!
