The Ponte Vedra High School Winter Guard completed the 2023 season with a stunning performance of its show “One Final Letter” at the Daytona Ocean Center on March 24. After coming off a tumultuous season in 2022 placing second overall in the AAA class at the Florida Federation Color Guard Circuit Championships, the team continued its momentum in 2023 by getting promoted to the AA class midway through the season. This promotion meant that the team exceeded the expectations of the previous classification and were ready to be promoted to the next highest classification. While this was unprecedented territory for many of the performers on the team, they stepped up to the challenge of a new class and had a successful championship run. The team finished fourth overall in the AA class and has put the winter guard program on the map in the state of Florida. The team is looking to compete on a international level next season by going to its first Winter Guard International regional.
Additionally, in a thrilling conclusion to the 2023 season, Ponte Vedra High School Percussion gave an awe-inspiring performance of its show “The Puppeteer” at the Daytona Ocean Center on March 25. Despite facing stiff competition, the dedicated team emerged victorious, securing an impressive second place in A class. This achievement has firmly established Ponte Vedra High School Percussion as one of the leading high school ensembles in Florida. Eager to take on new challenges, the team is already gearing up for next year’s competitions, striving to reach even greater heights in 2024.
