  1. just verified with the recap link posted a minute or two ago: cy woods: 18th (up from 33rd last year) bridgeland: 19th (up from 24th last year) cy fair: 30th (first state appearance since 2018) edit (forgot to add this): cy woods 2022 is now tied with cy fair 2014 for closest cfisd show to making finals (4th out) since langham creek made it in 2006. super impressive with the competition this year.
  2. cy woods and bridgeland were so painfully close to finals! both programs set school records today for their highest non-covid-year placements in state prelims, making some big jumps from last year. although cy-fair's placement today doesn't reflect it, they have had a wonderful comeback year and have been giving established programs a run for their money all season long. congratulations to all three of these bands- with the trajectory these programs are on, i'm expecting some big stuff out of cfisd next year. super super proud of all these kids.
  3. congratulations! i'm sure y'all were excited- i remember that feeling when woods finally made the return to state 3 years ago. i look forward to seeing y'all's run at state!
  4. i’ve been told from friends 1st - cy fair (state) 2nd - seven lakes (state) 3rd - bridgeland (state) 4th - cy woods (state) 5th - j e taylor (state) 6th - katy 7th - cinco ranch 8th - jersey village 9th - tompkins 10th - jordan anyone know what happened with jordan? i wasn’t there so i didn’t see how they did but that result is contrary to what i’ve been hearing about them this season. regardless, congrats to all bands who played today, and i look forward to seeing the top 5 at state!
  5. anyone know if there is a livestream for this contest? i haven't seen anything online for one but i'm really hoping that there is one and i've just missed it so far.
  6. So cool to see the CFISD representation with 5 schools here! I saw a clip from a Cy-Woods rehearsal from a little over a week ago, and they looked nice and sounded very good for where they are in the season. This year's show is definitely quite a bit different from what they've done historically, but it seems like they've adapted to it well. I'm hoping them to have a similar showing here to BOA Conroe last year, where they placed unexpectedly high in both prelims and finals. I haven't seen any of the other schools in the district this year, but Cy-Fair had a good season last year as well, and Cy-Park has been doing very nicely for only being a few years old. I'm interested to see how Ranch and Falls will do- it's been a while since I remember seeing them compete with big name programs. Hopefully it's a sign that they're on an upwards trend as well!
  7. My school doesn't participate in any indoor drumline for this exact reason. Rather than spending more time purely on the marching aspect of band, our percussion focuses on concert band to build more skill in a wider variety of percussion instruments. They put together several high-level pieces for a percussion concert that always happens at the end of the year, which are always incredible.
  8. I heard a rumor that Avon and/or Carmel are gonna try to come down to BOA SA next year. Not sure how credible that rumor is but something to keep in mind for predictions as bands slowly start to enroll.
  9. Pearland and Seven Lakes were truly great this year. It’s a real shame we didn’t have any Houston bands in finals this year, especially with just how close they were. Cypress Woods in 29th feels absurdly low. Like, I understand no finals- there are tons of excellent programs here. But a 29th placement is contrary to everything displayed by the program this year. Jersey Village and Bridgeland felt a little low as well, but not as upsetting as Woods.
  10. Loved everything I've seen today, but man, Woodlands has got to be my favorite of the night. CTJ and Vandy aren't far behind in my eyes, but I just adore the energy they brought in this performance. Personally don't see any way they don't medal tomorrow.
  11. Admittedly I hadn't seen Leander since their first game this year until just now. Even on Box5, I can really feel the power they're putting forward in their sound! I remember hearing early season that this year's Leander isn't at the same quality of years past. Maybe that's true, I wouldn't know- but I've gotta say I'm LOVING the top notch work I'm seeing here.
  12. I wouldn't count out Cypress Woods. While admittedly area competition and early season results aren't the most reliable, they've had a great season, and their victories over 7L and Pearland this year should be noted. It's a slim chance, but still a chance.
  13. Finals Results: 10th - Tompkins 9th - Katy 8th - Cy-Falls 7th - Cy-Fair 6th - James E. Taylor 5th - Cinco Ranch 4th (State Qualify) - Jersey Village 3rd (State Qualify) - Seven Lakes 2nd (State Qualify) - Cypress Woods Area Champion (State Qualify) - Bridgeland
  14. From the way it’s phrased, I’d think a good thing. Absolutely helps to have some real power in your hornline sound as long as it’s still a good, quality sound. And from what I’ve seen and heard about Cy-Fair, that’s exactly what they’re doing right now.
  15. It's very possible. Out of those four my bets are on Cy-Fair and JET, but I wouldn't count out Bridgeland or Tompkins just yet. I've also heard occasional whispers of Cinco Ranch sneaking into state? I haven't seen them this year so I have no idea how credible that is but I guess it's something to watch for this weekend. Should also be interesting to see how Cy-Woods and Seven Lakes compare here. Cy-Woods has never won an area competition before, but with them beating Seven Lakes at Conroe, this year has the possibility to be their first. No doubt the Seven Lakes kids have been working crazy hard to stay ahead of Cy-Woods as well. Regardless, there are going to be a ton of great programs at this competition and I'm very excited to see how it turns out.
