We already have a tag for state, but not area. Any predictions for finalists?

I guess all of them.

Who do you think is making finals for each area?

That's a lot of predictions to make, 9 areas for 6A now means there's going to be A LOT of area finalists, anywhere from 63-90 bands will advance to Area Finals (assuming each area has enough bands for finals and depending on whether they get 7 or 10 area finalists)

Ok, I'll just start with my own area. Who do you think will make finals in Area D? Pflugerville is down to 5A, CTJ isn't going to Grand Nats And Austin is now 6A.

As an Area D native (go Wood), this has been on my mind. It's gonna be one hell of a bloodbath (as usual) with (no particular order) CTJ, Bowie, Churchill, Hendrickson, Round Rock, Cedar Ridge, Westwood, and Reagan all as strong programs who have all qualified for state in the past and have since maintained their skill. Keep in mind that's 8 out of the 10 final spots already, so I'm more focused on who will take those last 2 spots. Pflugerville (previously a consistent area finalist) is gone, so it opens up the doors to other programs. There are a handful of bands that could take these slots, I've personally got my eyes on New Braunfels, Hays, Austin, and Belton. My 2 predictions at the current time are New Braunfels and Belton, Belton because of a director change that could work massively in their favor, but Hays and Austin are both strong programs that could surprise me.

 

The part that hurts me the most is that only 5 (6 if we're lucky) bands will qualify for state, it's a headache to have to choose, but I think CTJ is a lock without a doubt.

2016 Area D Finalists - (11 since CTJ dropped out and in no order)

Reagan 

CTJ

Bowie

Round Rock

Cedar Ridge

Westwood

Churchill

New Braunfels

Anderson 

Hendrickson

Pflugerville (moved to 5A)

 

2014 Finalists - (no order again)

Westwood

Round Rock

Hendrickson 

CTJ

Cedar Ridge 

Anderson

Pflugerville (moved to 5A)

Bowie

Reagan 

Westlake (Moved to Area E)

(Churchill missed finals by 1 place and New Braunfels missed by a couple places)

 

Now for 2018, I think that locks are - 

Reagan

CTJ 

Bowie

Hendrickson

 

Safe bets - 

Round Rock 

Cedar Ridge

Westwood 

Churchill


The final two spots could go to a multitude of bands. Statistically speaking, Anderson should take one of the last two spots because they have made finals consistently in the past (making state in 2010, missing finals w/ Round Rock in 2012 but making finals again in 2014 and 2016)

 

However, there are some other bands that could steal the spot from Anderson such as Hays, Lehman, and Austin, as Anderson has unfortunately seen a "slump" in placement in the past two-ish years. 

 

It also wasn't too long ago that Akins was consistently making area finals, and they even made state finals. Could we see a resurgence of Akins as an area finalist? I say it's possible!

 

Last Two - 

Anderson

New Braunfels

 

Bubble -

Hays

Lehman

McNeil (made finals in 2012 and 2010)

Madison

Akins

Austin

Canyon

Area C, oops madea mistake

 

Flower Mound

Marcus

Hebron (obviously these 3)

Berkner

Wylie

North Mesquite

McKinney Boyd

 

That leaves 3 other spots, honestly I don't see enough of these area finalists to tell their potential, Allen could edge in again, and there's also McKinney and Sachse (I'm not 100% sure if all of these bands are in 6A next year, I'm pretty sure they all are though) Rockwall missed finals by a fair number of points but with a 10, 18, 9 in music, and 13 and 13 in marching, there's always a potential for a band like this to come back with cleaner marching and not have a random sticking out judge like that 18.

Thank you! I always make these little mistakes because the areas are so different between 1A-4A, 5A, and 6A. I need to pay more attention!

This is a super solid prediction. I definitely can see what you wrote happening.

Don't sleep on Prosper....they had a really solid year and were right on Richland's heels at 5A state last year. 

 

Area B is going to be incredible!!

I remember how disconcerting it was for us when Leander went from 5A to 6A in 2016-17.  The competition at the 6A level is extraordinary!  


Each day is a gift. That’s why it’s called “the present.”

Hopefully for Area B, 6 will advance.   I think in the thread called Conference Realignments they went thru the list off all possible
bands, and there was a good chance that 30 bands would receive a 1 rating.     At least we can hope!
