I will be the first to admit that other than Pearland and North Shore, I am not really familiar with the current quality of these other programs. I have been really impressed with the two I mentioned in the last couple of years.

Does anyone know if this contest is judged more like BOA or UIL? That would make a big difference in outcome here. Some really great schools competing in this one. I think it could turn out with any one of Pearland, Oak Ridge, Clear Brook, North Shore, SFA, or Dawson on top.

I’ll take a stab on it.

 

1. Pearland

2. SFA

3. North Shore

4. Dawson (Idk this program but it seems they’ve done well in the past)

5. Clear Brook

6. Oak Ridge

7. Waller

8. Clear Falls

9. Dickinson (May be off on this)

10. Clear Lake

 

The top competitors are fairly close in terms of achievement level. Although this is my list, I’m hoping there will be an upset that will spell excitement for the future of the season. However, Pearland doing amazing will be just fine too.

 

Also, SFA seems really solid. I saw then perform from the sidelines this past week.

I’m only familiar with those top 6 bands but I’d agree with your prediction.

I think it’s more like BOA because I’ve seen the score sheets the past few years and the scoring looks similar to the kind of contest with GE seeming to be a big deal instead of just relying on marching and music like UIL

I am big fan of both dawson pearland but i feel dawson has been steadily getting farther away from pearland in terms of skill and overall show quality pearland on the other hand has been getting exponentially better over the past 2-3 years with their last show being amazing also SFA has always been a very great band but this year i feel pearland is doing better based on what i have seen

They are giving awards based on just prelims since finals were cancelled.

My sister is at the competition and they are doing awards now. She didn’t tell me everything so I don’t know the caption winners or the whole rankings, I just know this:

 

Overall:

1. SFA

2. Pearland

3. Oak Ridge

4. Dawson

Unfortunately I didn’t go to the competition so I can’t weigh in personally on my thoughts on how the bands did, which is a bummer; I love to show some much needed love for the Houston area bands. Though historically speaking, none of the caption wins surprised me. Dawson’s guard is always on point, Clear Brook’s percussion is essentially God, and then SFA always seems to always win this contest with the most caption wins.

I wish the website showed the detailed scores and the placement of other bands to see how close the scoring was.

I was thinking the exact same thing. I know it’s not the same contest as like BOA or something but whenever I see a score below 70 I naturally think yikes and they all were like that. Sooooo I’m really curious if they just have a weird way of scoring or they all.....just weren’t very good.
