We weren’t thinking championship; we were hoping that we could just finish the season ahead of the Velvet Knights. We had been beaten by Phantom Regiment, The Cavaliers, Garfield Cadets, The Blue Devils, and Santa Clara Vanguard. There was no reason to think we would be top five, let alone contenders for the championship.

#FlashbackFriday! Here are some shots of the 1970-71 Garfield Cadets Winter Color Guard, formed shortly after women were first allowed into the corps in 1969. Designed by Pete Emmons, this show featured silent drill instead of recorded music. These photos were taken at Garfield HS.
For anon. The Garfield Cadets took their second straight championship with a record smashing performance of their show “West Side Story.” (Feel free to click the photos to get more individualized comments.)
