Decided to throw my hat in for a early season prediction 😏

1st Vandegrift (AAAA) 

With what looks like CTJ missing this regional, I believe its clear Vandegrift will take it.

2nd Cedar Ridge (AAAA)

So these next 5 are pretty interchangeable however Since CR’s 6th place finish at San Antonio last year, I have pretty high expectations from them. However they did also start the season somewhat rougher then where they ended up last year, so I could see them lower and peaking towards the end of the season.

3rd Vista Ridge (AAAA)

I see Vista starting to work their way back to where they once were. that being said they have been know to choke a finals run ;)

4th Rouse (AAA)

Rouse is stepping up their show this year and i think its gonna be very rewarding for them. they were easily the smallest band in the top 30 at San Antonio and managed to get 11th in prelims and 13th in finals. this is an up and coming group who will be competing to be the regional champion sooner or later. 

5th Leander (AAA) You can’t go wrong with leander! Easily one of the most fun groups out there. I believe this season for them will be similar to their last as they continue to adjust to their even smaller size and new head director.

6th Cedar Park (AAA) I love to see that Cedar Park is starting to return to their former glory. However this group is likely going to have a rough early season, “Why?” you may ask? They’re going to have mirrors as backdrops which will expose their visual (which is their worst caption) really bad, I believe the backdrops could do wonders later in the season but not early season when the drills still dirty. They would be lower but their superb music skills will keep them in the top 6.  

 

7th Westlake

8th Round Rock 

9th Hendrickson

10th James Bowie

11th Westwood

12th Wiess/ Lake Travis

 

Music: Vandegrift (maybe CR)

Visual: Vandegrift 

GE: Vandegrift (maybe rouse)

Any idea why CTJ opted to not make the trip this year?

I believe they were just ready to change things up a bit this year!   Also, they are beginning school a week earlier than they are accustomed to (Aug 10) so they won’t have as much time as they are used to having to learn the entire show. BOA Austin comes quick!

I doubt the mirrors will give them too much trouble. While CP has had some difficulty in ensemble visual, their individual visual scores are consistently their highest placing caption.
