  1. My Top 10 (alphabetical order): Cedar Ridge Claudia Taylor Johnson Dripping Springs James Bowie McNeil New Braunfels Ronald Reagan Round Rock Westwood Winston Churchill Other bands that I think could sneak in include Harker Heights, Midway, and Weiss
  2. Someone messed up the submission for 6A Area D. It is happening on the 29th, not the 22nd.
  3. 6th: - Socorro HS 5th: - Horizon HS 4th: - Parkland HS 3rd: - Eastlake HS 2nd: - Pebble Hills HS 1st: - Hanks HS Music: Hanks HS Visual: Hanks HS General Effect: Hanks HS Percussion: Pebble Hills HS Guard: Pebble Hills HS Finals apparently only took 6
  4. 10) 74.60 - Belton 8) (tie) 78.20 - Weiss, New Braunfels 7) 78.40 - Liberty Hill 6) 79.60 - McCallum 5) 81.40 - Winston Churchill 4) 81.80 - Lake Belton 3) 83.20 - Tom Glenn 2) 83.80 - McNeil 1) 87.80 - Westwood (Sweep)
  5. Whoever submitted the HEB contest did it too early cause there are quite a few changes. Drop: Aledo, Creekview Add: Haltom I think in general people need to stop submitting contests for predictions until an official schedule comes out or it is the week of the contest. And another note, there are 2 Plano East Marching Invitationals. The second one without the Plano Jr. Highs is the correct one for predictions I believe.
  6. I'll be at this contest in person this weekend, super excited cause there's a ton of bands here who I haven't seen live but have wanted to for a while!
  7. Very flawed judging system in my opinion, had every judge giving scores for both music and visual.
  8. Schedule: 10:00am - Southwest 10:15 - Juan Seguin 10:30 - Trimble Tech 10:45 - Timberview 11:00 - Midlothian BREAK 11:30 - Aledo 11:45 - Legacy 12:00pm - Summit 12:15 - Highland Park 12:30 - Ranchview BREAK 1:00 - Lake Highlands* 1:15 - Lake Ridge 1:30 - McKinney 1:45 - Colleyville Heritage 2:00 - Sam Houston Apparently Lake Highlands may have dropped, but I don't know how the schedule will be adjusted so I left them in
  9. Just realized this regional doesn't have a thread yet! Very excited for this one and I wrote and article going over the bands who will be in attendance! Here is the prelims schedule: 9:45 AM - Valencia (NM) 10:00 AM - Alamogordo (NM) 10:15 AM - Eastlake (TX) 10:30 AM - Bel Air (TX) 10:45 AM - Cibola (NM) 11:00 AM - Del Valle (TX) 11:15 AM - Volcano Vista (NM) BREAK 12:15 PM - Andrews (TX) 12:30 PM - Centennial (NM) 12:45 PM - Eldorado (NM) 1:00 PM - La Cueva (NM) 1:15 PM - Las Cruces (NM) 1:30 PM - Cienega (NM) BREAK 2:30 PM - Clovis (NM) 2:45 PM - Grapevine (TX) 3:00 PM - Organ Mountain (NM) 3:15 PM - Riverside (TX) 3:30 PM - Canutillo (TX) 3:45 PM - Eastwood (TX) 4:00 PM - EXH. New Mexico State University
  10. Can we get an update for Las Cruces? Pebble Hills just dropped.
  11. Sorry for the late response! I just added a key cause I realized I forgot to do that.
  12. TMC was far more competitive last year than Vista Ridge has ever been
  13. I have returned from my slumber and threw this together. Separating by regions of Texas I found to be confusing so I kept it to just sorting them by dates. I'm using the HornRank lists, band calendars (links on the final sheet), and word of mouth from reliable sources to do this spreadsheet. As always, feel free to let me know who to add by commenting on the thread, but also if you are aware of any band calendars that I missed, send them to me and I will add them to the spreadsheet. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RaB1Yq5s3hEoWgTIsKvqqkesImeODeWOhYQ9BiqNNww/edit?usp=sharing
  14. Hendrickson has been confirmed to be planning a trip to Indy next year, will be interesting to see where they end up. They're not the same band they were in the mid-2010s, but on a relatively weaker year like this they might have a really good shot for finals. I'm hopeful because of their improvement from 2019 to 2021 was very large and now that they finally have a stable staff situation again, I hope they continue that progress.
  15. Argyle is supposedly rumored to be going to BOA Grand Nationals next year, excited to see them sweep Class AA as long as Tarpon doesn't show up
  16. On their way to a playoff game in Sweetwater, TX, the Andrews HS Band bus had an on-head collision with a car going the wrong direction down I-20. DPS has confirmed two fatalities, both the driver of the bus and the car. Two students are in critical but stable condition and being treated at the Scenic Mountain Medical Center in Big Springs, TX. The playoff game has been canceled and parents are picking their students up from the Big Spring ISD Athletic Training Center. All students have been accounted for as of the most recent updates. www.mrt.com/news/local/article/Andrew-s-ISD-school-bus-involved-in-head-on-in-16636383.php I will update this post as more information becomes public.
  17. After watching some of their competitors, I think Round Rock's chances are looking pretty good. DB and Wando don't seem to have cleaned up enough musically and aren't visually stunning enough to push them over Round Rock. I think the last 2 spots will be an absolute bloodbath between Fishers, Mason, and Round Rock. Maybe Brownsburg in there too, we'll see how they do tomorrow.
  18. By far the most interesting Area is D, with 8 dropping and only 5 coming back up. Belton now has less enrollment than Lake Belton, making them both 5A. Killeen is opening a new school (Killeen Chaparral) and has pulled significantly from all 4 schools. The addition of Comal's Davenport and Pieper pull enrollment from Smithson Valley. Hays and MG Johnson switch places. Dripping Springs, Weiss, and Manor pass the 6A threshold. Waco ebbs back down into 5A. This obviously makes 5A Area D an incredibly exciting Area now, with so many new contenders and only 1 state qualifier moving up.
  19. Courtesy of the 6A Texas Football forums, we have full projections for who will be the top 250 that will make up 6A. I took their data and figured out what the areas will look like assuming no changes to the alignments. Schools with asterisks* are new to 6A, those in (parentheses) are dropping to 5A. The number at the top is how many State spots there would have been with the Region results with the new Area lineups. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MBXo5_rkJB-s5hhlOWGUrp9qQ_4ySg4aUg6lAvSeL1M/edit?usp=sharing
  20. Here's the thing, when you split a contest by such a large time margin you're gonna get some weird results. We saw the same at BOA McAllen earlier this year.
  21. I'm personally very surprised by Johnson being below Dripping Springs, granted I only saw prelims but I thought Johnson was the clear favorite out of the two.
  22. I just learned that they actually got rid of this rule in 2020, but in 2019 and before it was in fact in place. It did not however apply to Region 8's 5A split, that was just speculation on my part over what the supposed 20th and 21st bands were.
