The Northwestern State University Demon Heat Color Guard was named champion of the Independent World Division at the Louisiana-Mississippi Color Guard and Percussion Circuit Championships held this past weekend in Thibodaux. The Demon Heat Color Guard placed first at each competition of the season in its classification which is the highest level.
“They were a crowd favorite all season and did a fantastic job,” said Demon Heat Director Estelle Murr.
The 37-member team performed a show titled “STRUCK,” which included violin and cello versions of the AC/DC song “Thunderstruck.”
Murr said the color guard had a staging camp in December and a choreography camp before school started in January. Demon Heat competed in four preliminary competitions throughout the season. Students practiced three days a week along with several weekend camps in preparation for the LMCGPC competition.
