Triumphant tears // This past month, members of the Wylie East Gems have outperformed many highly competitive winterguards including Aledo High School, McKinney North High School, and Rockwall Heath High School. Their most recent placement at the NTCA SAA/SA Championships was 2nd place overall in district 5A, earning them a glass trophy and silver medals. This year’s guard has progressed very far since their previous year’s competition placements.
