The Mid-East Power Regional will feature a total of 87 units in preliminary competition this Saturday. Between Hamilton High School and Cintas Center, the schedule includes 40 Scholastic A (SA), 7 Independent A (IA), 10 Scholastic Open (SO), 12 Independent Open (IO), 10 Scholastic World (SW), and 8 Independent World (IW) guards. 

Of these, only 10 SA, 4 IA, 8 SO, 9 IO, and all of the World Class groups will advance to Finals competition.

There will be a lot of fantastic groups at this regional, and when looking at the current standings (provided by WGI), competition will be tight to determine who will break into Finals. Because there are 40 SA guards, SA Prelims and Semis will be hosted at a second site—Hamilton High School—beginning at 10:00 AM ET.

Groups at the Cintas Center will begin on Saturday, March 23 at 9:30 AM ET. 

Scholastic A

In SA, three schools are currently ranked in the best 25 by WGI, including Flushing HS (10th) with their program, “Gran Torino,” Lockport Township HS (23rd) with their program, “Falling,” and Lincoln-Way Community HS (24th) with their program, “Little Girl Blue.” 

We also have Westerville North HS currently ranked in 27th with their program, “In Mourning,” which will also be one to watch for this weekend.

Independent A

In IA, three units are currently ranked in the best 20 by WGI, including SSJC-South Shore Jr. Cadets (7th) with their program, “Into the Light,” Black Diamond Independent (10th) with their program, “Meditation,” and Onyx (12th) with their program, “Malagueña.” 

Railmen are currently ranked 26th in the nation with their program, “Sailing,” so we should expect to see a strong performance from them, as well.

Scholastic Open

In SO, we have two schools currently ranked within the best 20 by WGI, including Fishers HS (13th) with their program, “A Self-Evident Truth,” and Ben Davis HS (16th) with their program, “War of Words.” 

Milford HS is currently ranked 21st with their program, “Fallen,” and LaPorte HS is ranked 29th with their program, “The Seagull."

Independent Open

In IO, we have five units currently ranked within the best 20 seedings by WGI, including Paramount Open (2nd) which we saw this weekend in Charlotte with their show, “Such Great Heights,” Allegiance's (10th) program, “Frost,” Black Gold Open's (15th) “Night Flight,” Ovation's (18th) “Spiral,” and Railmen Winter Guard's (19th) “Feelings.” 

We also have three guards ranked 21st-30th who are making a play for Finals at WGI World Championships this year, including Independence Winter Guard (21st) with their program, “Annabel Lee,” Lancaster Independent Open (25th) with their program, “Frisbee,” and Reverie's (28th) “Salem.” 

Scholastic World

In SW, we have seven schools ranked in the best 15 by WGI, including Avon HS's (1st) “O Night Divine,” Center Grove HS's (2nd) “Finding Peace,” Carmel HS's (4th) “A Lot of Strength Left,” Norwin HS (6th) with their program, “Out of My Mind,” Warren Central HS's (7th) “Finding Your Roots,” Miamisburg HS's (8th) “Yesterday’s Tomorrow,” and finally Plymouth-Canton Educational Park HS (15th) with their program, “Britney: Dreams and Tragedies of the Original Doll."

Independent World

In IW, we will see six groups that are currently seeded in finals by WGI, including Paramount holding in first after their 2018 championship title with their program, “The Elusive Horizon,” Pride of Cincinnati (2nd) with their program, “Another Door Opens,” Onyx (5th) with their program, “Shelter in Place,” Blessed Sacrament (7th) with their program, “A Conversation,” Bluecoats Indoor's (8th) “The Gravity of Reality,” and Black Gold's (14th) “The One You Can’t Forget.”
