While everyone else was on Spring Break last week, members of Riverbank High School’s Winterguard competed in the regional Central Valley Guard and Percussion Circuit event, hosted at Enochs High School in Modesto. The competition was on Saturday, April 6.

The Bruin team competed against three other squads in the AA division, coming in first against them to bring home the coveted gold medal. Riverbank scored 85.18 in the competition. Second place Turlock scored 81.83, with third place Los Banos receiving an 81.59 and Oakdale taking fourth at 79.54.

“After many months of hard work, the Riverbank Winterguard won the Scholastic Regional AA Gold Class Saturday at the CVGPC Championships,” RHS Music Director Joey Aguilar said enthusiastically. “Not only did the Riverbank Winterguard win their class, they also took home the Shirlee Whitcomb Award for the school with the highest score of the day. Words cannot express how proud the staff are of the Winterguard and all their hard work this year.”

With the school year winding down, Aguilar said it was a satisfying way to cap the competitive season.

“Congratulations to the 2024 Riverbank Winterguard, Regional AA Gold Champions,” Aguilar said.
