The 11 members of the North Hagerstown High School Indoor Color Guard won first place Saturday in the Maryland State Indoor Guard championships at Westminster High School, according to coach Erica Sherrill.
Team members are seniors Kristen Bohner, Jessica Connor and Brittany Wood; juniors Amy Brown and Katie Buchanan; sophomores Tracy Hinkle and Jessica Sasser; and freshmen Emily Miles, Summer Rain Quintana, Kayla Rager and Brittany Vinson.
In addition to Sherrill, the coaching staff includes Jamie Lynn Connor, Marylisa Idol and NHHS band director Jeremy Karacz.
Saturday's show, entitled "The Line of Communication," included music by Sheryl Crow and TLC.
"The guard practices three days a week, for as many as 15 hours a week," Sherrill said. "They have been practicing since November."
Sherrill said they use three different types of equipment - flags, rifles and sabres. They also perform dance moves choreographed by Bohner.
