At the BOA Austin Regional, Dripping Springs placed 14th and Sharyland Pioneer came in not too far behind at 17th. Granted, Pioneer was the very first band to perform and was perhaps the band that had to travel the farthest to get to the contest. I’m sure that was a huge factor. At BOA McAllen Regional, it’ll be the same for Dripping Springs, they’ll be traveling the farthest but fortunately they don’t have a horrible time-slot. They’ll be the very last band to perform so that gives them enough time to unwind and prepare, which was definitely not the case for Pioneer.
Beside Pioneer, I reckon Del Rio, James Madison, and Brownsville Hanna have the highest chances of snatching the contest. I don’t think it’ll happen but stranger things have happened before...especially at a BOA contest. Del Rio has been on the uprise these past few years and seem to be getting better every year. I’m excited to see where they land. Definitely a medalist contender. Brownsville Hanna is a perennial State qualifier, when was the last time this band didn’t advance to the SMC? They always have a good sound, great percussion and the size of this band is behemoth compared to other 6A valley bands. I am not too familiar with James Madison but I’ve seen a couple of their performances and could see them getting as high as 4th, maybe even third. Good ensemble sound.
After that, the rest is up for grabs for the finals spots. This is a State year for Roma and I certainly am sure that they’ll have a great production out in the field. This year’s Area G 5A contest crown will go to either Roma or Sharyland Pioneer. Edinburg Vela, Edinburg North, Brownsville Lopez, and SA Lee have good bids for finals.
