Her first troop

Gary Rotenbury sent in this shot. "This is a picture of the Lehigh Valley Knights guard (most of them) trooping the stands after their performance at the DCA/DCI show in Reading, Pa., on July 12. This is my daughter's first year in drum corps. She is only 14, and this was her first competition. She's the one in the middle (fifth from both ends). "Her mother and I are extremely proud of her as we both come from competitive marching band and drum corps backgrounds; and we now have a renewed awe for Division III corps. So if you see the Knights at a show, scream for Lauren." Thanks Gary!
