Broken Arrow

Broken Arrow (1st, 86.70) took home top honors Saturday night, continuing their more than decade long streak of regional wins. That’s a record that might have you screaming “Yee Haw!” Bad jokes aside, it’s certainly a good first public showing as the band prepares to defend their title at the St. Louis Super Regional later this week and compete against some other incredible central state bands.

Tarpon Springs/Wando

Tarpon Springs (2nd, 85.75) was close behind, tying BA in the music caption and finishing just 0.05 behind in visual. In prelims, the Florida band was much closer to Wando (3rd, 82.05), finishing just 0.05 ahead because of a small penalty and Wando’s impressive music performance. In finals, Wando continued to see its best marks in music performance but wasn’t able to stay ahead of former national champion Tarpon.

Park Vista/Stoneman Douglas

Setting their sights on a Grand Nationals appearance this November, Park Vista (4th, 80.70) was the only other band to break the 80-point mark all day. Their biggest strength came in the visual caption, winning individual music and finishing just one-twentieth behind Wando in overall visual performance. Stoneman Douglas (5th, 79.15), known for their world-class color guard, also earned high marks in the visual caption, finishing just 0.25 behind Wando.

Timber Creek/University

Timber Creek (6th, 76.25) definitely turned some heads this week with their powerful sound! Not to be confused with the Texas band that shares their name, Timber Creek (Florida) earned prelims music performance scores that bested both Stoneman Douglas and Park Vista. Close behind was University (7th, 75.80) who jumped one spot from prelims to finals due to an increase in scores across the board, but especially in their individual performance captions, which are judged from field level.

Windermere/Brownsburg

Windermere (8th, 73.45) and Brownsburg (9th, 73.35) were the closest competitors in finals, finishing just a single tenth apart. For Windermere, this was a big step forward during the school’s third year of existence. It’s also a first for Brownsburg, the school’s first competitive performance of the year, but far from the last as state competitions in Indiana ramp up before the group competes at two big BOA competitions in Lucas Oil Stadium.

A.D. Nease

A.D. Nease (10th, 71.15) rounded out the ten finalist bands in Orlando with an excellent show. Their prelims score was over 3 points higher than the finals cut off: a strong statement that this band’s appearance in finals was well deserved.

In Exhibition

Class A champion Newberry and Class AAA champion Gainesville were also invited to perform in finals because of their class champion status. Gainesville finished 11th in prelims, just one spot away from competing in finals, and eighth in the music caption, above several finalists bands.
