The Yucca Valley High School Trojan marching band and Sunsations color guard took high honors during two recent competitions. On October 12, in Barstow, the Trojans dominated the 30th Annual High Desert Class marching band and color guard competitions. The marching band earned second place, while the drumline and colorguard both captured first place. A week later, the Trojan band and drumline took first place, and the colorguard was awarded second place. The judges complimented the band and guard on their musical selections and the variety of the show; one of the visual judges commended the ensemble for creating a huge visual presence on the field despite having a small colorguard.
