The Santaluces High School Junior Varsity AND Varsity Winter Color Guards were crowned WGI South Florida Regional Champions when they won in their respective classes earlier this month. Santaluces Junior Varsity won the Regional A Class and the Santaluces Varsity were crowned Open Class Champions. The Varsity squad is preparing for their trip to Dayton, Ohio for the 2010 WGI Color Guard World Championships. Director of Bands Evan Rogovin says his school has the most successful Color Guard Program in the entire District. “Our members have been WGI World Championship Finalists five times in the past seven years including the 2003 Scholastic A World Championship as a crown jewel in that legacy,” he stated proudly. “ In addition, the Santaluces Color Guard has won a total of eight SFWGA South Florida Championships and we haven’t seen achievement like that by any other school during the last 15 years,” he said.
More recently, the Santaluces Winter Percussion members debuted their show “Machines” and were crowned WGI Boca Raton Regional Champions by winning both the preliminary round and final round over nine schools from around South Florida. The students are currently preparing for the SFWGA South Florida Championships and hope to attend the WGI Percussion World Championships in Dayton, Ohio.
Currently, Santaluces High School is ranked in the TOP five Nationally out of over 100 high schools in the United States.
