Rachael Waggoner sent this one in. "This picture is of the Blue Stars' color guard after winning Division III finals on the Saturday of finals week. This season has meant so much to me in so many ways. The show was really challenging, and so were some of the situations that we experienced, but all in all, we all grew as a family. "I started off marching in 1998 with the Colt Cadets, having never spun a flag before, and I soon fell in love with the drum corps activity. After three years of Colt Cadets, I marched Emerald Knights in 2001, and then came to Blue Stars in 2002. I think that coming here was one of the best decisions that I've ever made. This corps has so much history and love in everything that we do, and we just never quit. I want to thank everyone who I marched with this year, and especiallly thank our staff for the amazing job that they did in pushing us to be the best that we could be. They all helped make a dream of mine come true." Thanks Rachel!
