Tell us a story, about your worst guard injury and how it happened.
A few months ago, July 6th, I was at James Madison University for their yearly summer band camps. On that morning, after breakfast all the guard girls, and our one and only boy, (I'm talking about the students, we had about 3 male instruction), headed down to the field hockey complex for our morning session. After warming up our bodies, we started doing across the floors. We jazz-walked, we jazz-run, we did the tribal dance, among other things. We also did something called "grow and die". I'll explain how to do it so you can understand the story as it progresses. It's an 8 count move, starting on the & count your right arm go up while you go into releve into demi-pointe on your right leg/foot, on the one count you do the same thing you did just did on the right side, but you do it on the left side. On count 2 you hold that pose. On counts 3 and 4, you collapse (die). After you die, on counts 5 and 6 you sashe and on counts 7 and 8 you do another sahse. While doing this across the floor for the first time since last year. During the sashes, my left foot ended up bending in a way it should not bend. Almost a week later, I go to the doctors to learn that I cracked a bone in the foot.
There you have it my WORSE guard injury to date. I'm actually unable to march this season. D:
My (ex)captain lost her cherry when a pole hit her...yeah really hard when my other (ex) captain swung her flag up and out. There was an audible pop. maybe it isn't the worst injury, but it is...odd.
