After nearly a month, we are finally seeing another band commit to this contest. The Princeton HS band from Collin County which is just a little bit east of McKinney will be coming down to compete this fall!  Princeton was moved up by UIL from a 4A school to a 5A school a few years ago, and I’m guessing will be considered a 3A band by BOA standards. Can’t wait to see and hear what this band will do at BOA Austin!

I'm pretty sure they will actually be a AA band in BOA

Isn’t it crazy that they can be a 5A size band in UIL but only 2A in BOA?!

Texas UIL counts school enrollment of 9th - 12th graders. BOA only counts 10-12th grade students as they are a national circuit and while Texas middle schools are 6-8 and High School is 9-12, the west coast is 7/8th for middle school and in the east and others do middle school 7-9 and 10-12th for High School. When Texas schools open and explode with transfers and the new freshman class does not count for BOA you get some big programs that compete in the lower classes of BOA - it is usually an advantage as it is a smaller pool of schools that compete in those classes

I know its still very early in the season but I just watched Round Rock's parent preview and they are much farther along at this point than in 2019. I would be surprised not to see them make a return to the top 5 or 6 this year. They don't have a lot of drill yet though so maybe I'm overreacting slightly idk.

I would say it's a safe bet that they have more drill than what they were showing.

I have bolded the programs that I think are the likely finalist for BOA Austin - this is based on history and does not take into account the 2020 Covid pause. we still do not know what that impact will have, as all programs will have both a freshman and sophomore class that will be seeing their first real BOA marching season, and many will have 2 classes that have never marched competitively.  

Just my thoughts, but I think that the medal race at this event will be between (in Alpha Order) - the great thing will be seeing them again a few weeks later in the same stadium - plus Reagan - for the TMC Event - THAT will be the event to see
