2017 USBands Southwestern Championship
Posted 16 May 2017 - 02:40 PM
On October 21st, 2017, USBands will be holding the first ever marching band competition to be hosted in the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium. They are targeting enrollment to be "up to 60" bands.
This is the week before 1A/2A/3A/5A Area on the same day as several UIL Region competitions, so we will have to see about attendance.

How many finalists can we expect? I'm not too familiar with the usbands format.
If they're planning on accommodating 60 bands at a one day competition, I suspect there might not be a finals. Otherwise i think they take 15? Idk, usbands is hard to follow

It is UIL weekend. They won't be there.
what do you think the chances are we see a band like Marcus or Flower Mound attend?
From what I understand USBands is a completely different scoring system than BOA. I saw the list of bands competing and really didn't recognize hardly any of them.
If the Carroll is Southlake Carroll then they should do OK. I saw them at UIL a couple years ago and they put on a good show. They have rec'd a 1 rating the last few years at UIL region
We ARE Flower Mound!

Would imagine Lafayette, LA wins this one- though they aren't quite what they used to be so I suppose they may have some challengers
They certainly still seem like the front runner but who knows. USBands can certainly create surprises and we may see a band really step up and exceed expectations.

Prelim scores from Group 3 (Anna, Del Valle, and Liberty-Eylau)
3rd place: Anna HS (82.6125) - Caption awards for Percussion and Music
2nd place: Del Valle HS (82.6375) - Caption award for Colorguard
1st place: Liberty-Eylau HS (82.75) - Caption award for Overall Effect
LE moves on to finals as well. I'm not sure if Anna or Del Valle do.
I don't really know much more because that's all that was posted to LE's page.
