From the Bands of America world, 2016 Grand National silver medalist Avon High School announced that it will be making the long trip to the 2017 BOA Super Regional in San Antonio, Texas, in November.

The Indiana program has a long list of accomplishments from both BOA contests and WGI Sport of the Arts as well. This past fall it was named the champion of the 2016 BOA Indianapolis Super Regional. More recently, the color guard ensemble finished second in the scholastic world division at the 2017 WGI Color Guard World Championships.

Avon's percussion and winds ensembles will both be performing at the 2017 WGI Percussion and Winds World Championships, beginning April 20 in Dayton, Ohio.

The Bands of America San Antonio Super Regional is known as one of the most highly anticipated events in the BOA season. Adding another incredible marching band like Avon to mix will only make things more amazing on November 3-4 at the Alamodome.

1. Flower Mound H.S., TX - 93.30
2. The Woodlands H.S., TX - 91.25
