McLean’s Winter Guard Wins Regional Competition

McLean’s Winter Guard Wins Regional Competition

— McLean High School’s Winter Guard took first place in their division at the Atlantic Indoor Association’s Regional Championship last Saturday night at Woodbridge High School. The competition, which closes out the indoor season, pitted McLean’s 12 member team against 15 regional groups.

Winter Guard is a form of dance theater similar to outdoor color guard (which performs with a drum corps or marching band), except that performances are indoors on gymnasium floors throughout the winter season.

The McLean group performs under the direction of Jesus Villeda and staff members Joy Shanaberger, Carmen Khouri and Amy Edwards. For more information about the McLean High School Color Guard go to or send an email to
