    Default 2012 UIL Area Results

    Bands may not be listed in placement order.

    In 5A:
    Area A: Coronado, Keller, Keller Central, and Fossil Ridge
    Area B: Marcus, Hebron, Plano East, LD Bell, Richland
    Area C: Duncanville, Coppell, Berkner,and Rowlett
    Area D: Bowie, CTJ, Reagan, Westlake, Lake Travis, and Hendrickson
    Area E: Langham Creek, Cy-Fair, Seven Lakes, and Clements
    Area F: Spring, Pearland, Woodlands, Brazoswood, Clear Brook, Dickinson, and Clear Lake
    Area G: United, Hanna, Harlingen, Harlingen South, Donna, San Benito, Lopez, and O'Connor

    In 3A:
    Area A: Lubbock Cooper, Wylie, Monahans
    Area B: Argyle, Princeton, Wills Point, Canton
    Area C: North Lamar, Spring Hill, Henderson, Atlanta
    Area D: Burnet, China Spring, Kennedale, Springtown, Castleberry
    Area E: Fredericksburg, Rio Hondo, Port Isabel, La Grulla, Hidalgo

    It's definitely going to be an interesting State year for 5A. Somehow, Round Rock didn't even make it to Area D finals (one judge had them 22nd for marching!) and LD Bell was fifth in area B prelims. Area G didn't give results until 1 in the morning -- ouch.

    For those unfamiliar with the Texas UIL system, it is somewhat similar to the ISSMA process. Texas is divided into approximately 30 geographic regions. Each region holds a contest for its region where each band is rated (not scored) on a scale of 1-5. 1 is a superior rating, and therefore advances to Area (similar to semi-state). Each area is comprised of 3-5 regions. Here it is a prelims-finals format. For every 5 bands that advanced from the region to area level, one band advances to state. For example, Area F had 35 bands competing at the area level, and therefore sends 7 bands. No area can send less than three bands. Each area sends its state qualifying bands to the state marching contest, which is held the Tuesday after the San Antonio Super Regional in the Alamodome.

    UIL contests are scored quite differently than BOA contests. There are three music judges and two marching judges, who generally reward achievement and fine-line perfection over effect and design. Each judge scores the band 1-1000 and then his or her score is converted to an ordinal. For example, if Marcus (defending state champ) was scored highest in every category, its final score would be 5 because all 5 judges awarded them first place.

    In even numbered years 3A (big small schools) and 5A (large schools, mostly BOA 4A) have their state contest.
    In odd numbered years 1A (small small schools), 2A (small schools), 4A (small large schools that would probably be BOA 3A) have their state contest.

    And when he says UIL 1A are small small schools, he isn't joking.

    Last year's UIL 1A Champion was Sundown H.S. from Sundown, TX. Located way out in the oilfields of north Texas, the town is only 1,500 people, the high school has only 180 students 9th-12th, and the marching band is always 90-100 kids. Literally half the school or more is in the marching band.
