The LaPorte High School Winter Color Guard competed at the Winter Guard International World Championships held in Dayton, OH, on April 6, 7 and 8. Prelims for the 47 Scholastic Open Class guards were held April 6. The top 24 scoring guards advanced to the April 7 semifinals and LaPorte placed 19th in the prelims, advancing them into the semifinals. The top 15 scoring guards from semifinals then advanced to the finals. LaPorte placed 16th in the semifinals, just missing the finals by one placing and only 4 tenths of a point.
In spite of missing the finals by such a small margin, this season was a huge improvement from missing the semifinals last year by one place.
Color guards from many states participated, with the Stockdale High School Guard from Bakersfield, CA, winning the finals.
