    IV Open
    1. Nazareth Area (PA) 97.575
    2. King Philip (MA) 97.5
    15. Champaign Central 88.975 (bottom group)

    V Open
    1. Dartmouth (MA) 96.7
    2. Blackstone Millville (MA) 96.325
    3. Cheshire (CT) 96.325

    VI Open
    1. Roxbury (NJ) 98.0
    2. S. Brunswick (NJ) 97.55
    3. North Penn (PA) 96.75
    4. Immaculata (NJ) 95.975
    8. Pennsbury 92.725 (bottom group)

    BOA Hempstead scores (2 weeks ago, 10/27)

    Is that the Champaign Central from Illinois?

    If so...

    Their highest Illinois score...70.48 at the University of Illinois Championships, good for 8th in their class.

    Would Marcus score a 101?
    That's pretty ridiculous.

    Actually, if we use Immaculata as a standard (73.45 vs. 95.975):

    [I]USSBA Score = BOA Score * 1.31[/I]

    Therefore, going by the BOA San Antonio results, Marcus would score a 126.022 at a USSBA contest.


    Isn't math fun?

    While I certainly don't agree with the scoring at all, I do believe that the judges got the placements right, for a change. I don't think Roxbury winning is too hard to fathom, and South Brunswick and King Philip virtually tied, with North Penn a little behind them. Immaculata had a nice spread (for USSBA...) between them and the other bands, thankfully, because if they were still within .1 of them I'd be pulling the BS card on them.

    I'm just glad Marc Sylvester had the balls to actually give some of the "lower" bands the lowest score the "floor" would allow, because I'm really tired of seeing some of these judges start scoring these bands around a 37 (the BOA equivalent of an 18.5 in any given caption) and working up from there.

    Quick clarification. the group 4 bands had a different set of judges i believe. there were awards after the 4's. and After the 6's. So 5 and 6 had a different set than the 4's.

    Rox id deserve to win, however a 98 is really really high. Be even USSBA standards. North Penn had a 98 something at "nationals" last year, and it was the highest score ever in USSBA.

    I know, I was bitter because they beat the former record score which was set by my high school by .125. Damn you NP!!!!!

    oh well. I feel bad for the kids at NP. They were on a role early in the season. I guess they peaked early. At the towson regional and Yamaha cup they had two great showings in big shows.

    I feel kind of bad, too, because I've always loved watching North Penn. But you know what, good for Roxbury and South Brunswick for being able to beat them in USSBA finals competition. South Brunswick has been close for years now, and Roxbury has been due to win for a couple of years especially after that really close finish last year.

    yup.

    God knows they'll be back with a vengeance.

    I'm excited to see how they go after SB and Bridgewater in the BOA circuit next year. The three are really giving that area some respect nationally
