The Westwood color guard, under the direction of Chris Josey, provides additional visual aspects to the marching band performance. The color guard performs alongside the marching band at football games and competes in winter guard contests during the late winter and early spring. The color guard interprets the music that the marching band is playing via the synchronized spinning of flags, sabers, rifles, and through dance. The color guard uses different colors and styles of flags as well as costuming to enhance the visual effect of the marching band as a whole. The color guard may also use backdrops and scenery to provide color to enhance and expand the concept of the show. Although not a requirement, many color guard members also play an instrument in the Westwood Warrior Band and have a background in dance.

In addition, both JV and Varsity earned 2nd place in each of their classes on Feb. 26, 2022 at TCGC Georgetown. Check out more photos of our 2022 season on our Flickr album.
