The Victor Cadet Guard completed their 2010 season finishing third among 42 guards from across New York State and Canada at the North East Colorguard Circuit Championships held on March 26, 2010 at RIT’s Gordon Field House. The New York State Federation of Contest Judges also awarded the Victor Cadet Guard the prestigious George Cowburn “Esprit de Corps Award” for exemplifying the characteristics of George Cowburn—dedication to the activity, willingness to assist other members of the circuit, good sportsmanship, integrity, and honor.
“This award, is one of the most prestigious awards a guard in the circuit can ever hope to receive, ” said Elaine Robinson, director, Victor Cadet Guard. “We are extremely appreciative of receiving the award that recognizes the hard work and dedication our guard has put forth this entire season.”
