Saturday’s Bands of America Powder Springs Regional Championship was a little shorter than most. 

Due to the weather, there was no finals portion of the competition this weekend in Georgia. But, that certainly didn’t change the fact that the regional event was chock full of strong performances and intriguing competitive storylines, including a red-hot race for the last spot in the top three. 

Top 10

Despite the weather, the group of bands that would have been finalists separated itself from the rest, with nearly two points standing between 10th and 11th places.

At the top of the group, Harrison earned the overall and AAAA Class Champion titles, topping the field by nearly a point and a half with a tally of 84.200. Harrison narrowly lost the music caption and barely won general effect, but their dominant performance in the visual caption made the difference. 

Then there was James F. Byrnes in second place with a score of 82.800 despite only scoring among the top two in general effect. The band actually took sixth in visual performance, but the same caption saw Summerville (3rd, 81.700) take 11th overall, which negated a first-place score in music performance.

The next two competitors were right on Summerville’s heels, with Walton (4th, 81.650) most notably finishing less than a tenth outside the top three. Mill Creek rounded out the top five with a score of 81.100, just over half a point behind Summerville. Mill Creek also scored as high as third in visual performance, while taking fifth in the other two major captions.

Fort Mill wasn’t too far behind the top five with a score of 80.400, while also earning the second-highest visual performance score of the event and the overall AAA championship title. 

There was a bit of a drop-off from there before another of the closest two-way races of the weekend, with Fayetteville (7th, 78.250) and Milton (8th, 78.200) separated by five-hundredths of a point. The former found its edge in music performance to make up for close deficits in both visual performance and general effect to Milton. 

From there, Hoover (9th, 76.700) and Sparkman (10th, 74.700) closed out to the Top 10, with the former scoring as high as seventh in visual performance. 

Down the List

While the Top 10 certainly had its fair share of interesting results, bands ranked 11th through 22nd had a handful of standout notes. The highlights:

Despite taking 14th overall, East Coweta (71.650) scored an astounding third-place finish in the visual performance caption. Mauldin (16th, 70.900) also overachieved in that same caption, taking 12th. 

Mauldin also scored in a dead tie with Jackson County; the former held a strong lead in visual performance and a slim edge in general effect, but Jackson County put up impressive numbers in music performance (14th overall) to erase the deficit. 

While the AAAA and AAA winners both earned spots in the Top 10, the AA title went to Pelham (12th, 72.950) with Kell (13th, 72.400) close behind, and the title for class A went to Signal Mountain (21st, 64.900).
