  1. 10 of the 12 are class AAAA in BOA, the largest classification. Blue Springs and Dobyns-Bennett are class AAA.
  2. Don't think it will happen any time soon but I would love to see Broken Arrow finally make the trip to San Antonio.
  3. Pretty strong lineup with Coppell, Hebron, and Cedar Park attending. I know Vandegrift used to come here too but it looks like they haven't been back in a few years. Should be a good competition.
  4. There are a lot of multi cam recordings up on YouTube. You can download them for yourself in case Box5 takes those videos down.
  5. Flower Mound was ranked 15th in Music GE in semifinals by one of the judges. That is a total head scratcher for me.
  6. Wando was first out with a 90.55. The last band to get in finals was Blue Springs with a 90.60. As for the finals scores I'll just say that I heavily disagree with the judges on a lot of the rankings and scores. Flower Mound deserved better IMO and Broken Arrow, although fantastic, was not that far ahead of everyone else. Guess the judges saw something that I didn't.
  7. Aside from Avon I totally disagree with the judges on all of the rankings and scores. Flower Mound and Vista Ridge deserved better IMO.
  8. Finals Results 1. Broken Arrow H.S., OK - 98.25 2. Carmel H.S., IN - 97.05 3. Avon H.S., IN - 96.65 4. The Woodlands H.S., TX - 96.20 5. Flower Mound H.S., TX - 95.40 6.

  9. And yes that 98.25 is a new record score, beating Hebron's 97.85 at 2015 BOA Grand Nationals Semifinals.

  11. A second show in Dallas is great news! That regional's been at or near max enrollment for quite some time now, another regional will do good to relieve the enrollment and bring in more bands in the area.
  12. I think Broken Arrow will ultimately come away with the Eagle tonight. That show was built to win it all. That being said, there were other groups I preferred (Flower Mound, Avon, CTJ) and I am absolutely pulling for Flower Mound to swoop in and keep the Eagle in Texas!
  13. I think Flower Mound had their absolute best run!!! That was so WONDERFUL!!!!!! I love this show and the playfulness of every part of it!!! If this doesn't get a medal I will be SO disappointed!!!
  14. Yeah I think the last thread broke for real lol. Anyway I thought Broken Arrow was near flawless and likely the champion here, but Avon sure brought the house down! Love their rendition of Fire of Eternal Glory. Marcus was just beautiful. I don't know how else to put it, but those mellophone soloists were outstanding and the best I've heard all year. Absolutely deserved that music caption in semifinals and wouldn't be surprised to see them win it again.
  15. That was an INCREDIBLE performance from the Woodlands. The level of that color guard is unreal and those soloists are spectacular. Cannot believe the level of bands here tonight.
  16. That was a INCREDIBLE performance from the Woodlands. The level of that color guard is unreal and those soloists are spectacular. Cannot believe the level of bands here tonight.
  17. Blue Springs' show is a lot of fun! Enjoyed the soloists, though wished there was a bit more full ensemble moments as opposed to the soloists and small ensembles on the platform. After Claudia Taylor Johnson you can tell there's a definite step down musically, but the visual side was still excellent. Great performance!
  18. CTJ's ending has to be one of my favorites of the season! Love the vocalist throughout the entire show and the massive hit at the end was spectacular! Love this show and am willing it to break into the top half!!!
  19. Great show from Mason! Lux Aurumque is a fantastic piece and they played it beautifully. Excellent performance from the woodwinds throughout the whole show too! Unfortunately those uniforms really don't work well with the field and hurt the visual design for me.
  20. Excellent performance by Vista Ridge. The brass was absolutely fantastic the entire show and I love the commitment of every member to the show! The guard does need a bit more development but Vista Ridge will be a mainstay in the BOA world for years to come.
  21. The choral moments in Dobyns-Bennett's show were brilliant. Loved the ending with the entire band singing together! Great show!
  22. Reagan had their best run of the season in my opinion, great performance!
  23. Sad to see CTJ in the bottom six of finals. I think this is the strongest show they've taken to nationals and was really pulling for them to grab a medal here. It looks like Team Texas may be coming home without a medal this year, but Flower Mound's performance time puts them in a great spot to potentially sneak into the top 3.
