    My guess would be Marian Catholic/Broken Arrow 1/2, then 10-12 other bands

    Air Academy H.S., CO
    Birdville H.S., TX
    Blue Springs H.S., MO
    Coweta H.S., OK
    Irondale H.S., MN
    Kickapoo H.S., MO
    Lindbergh H.S., MO
    O'Fallon Township H.S., IL
    Owasso H.S., OK
    Roosevelt H.S., SD
    Rosemount H.S., MN

    Are some of the possibilities

    I'll be brave and call it for Owasso.
    Your lasting reputation as a music program doesn't come from the show you produce and put on the field this year. It comes from how you, your staff, your boosters, parents and students all treat each other and the people around them.

    Lightbulb Re: BOA St. Louis

    Here are my predictions. IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER - I'm just predicting who will make finals. Going down in performance order:

    DEFINITE FINALISTS:
    Bellevue West, NE
    Jenks, OK
    Prospect, IL
    Broken Arrow, OK
    Marian Catholic, IL
    Blue Springs, MO
    Eden Prairie, MN
    Rosemount, MN
    Owasso, OK

    POSSIBLE FINALISTS:
    Eastview, MN
    Lindbergh, MO
    Rockwood Summit, MO
    Kickapoo, MO
    Irondale, MN
    Fort Zumwalt North, MO
    O'Fallon Township, IL
    Legacy, CO
    Morton, IL
    Birdville, TX
    Van Buren, AR
    Air Academy, CO

    It's hard to tell who will and won't make finals this year. I've been looking at scores from "local" competitions in other areas... the scores are ALL OVER the map this year. Basing your predictions on previous years for some of these schools is incredibly hard to do. We'll have to see how it all turns out!

    Finals will be everyone clawing at each other.

    1. Broken Arrow
    2. Owasso
    3. Marian Catholic
    4. Blue Springs
    5. Rosemount (very close to BS)
    6. Prospect
    7. Eden Prairie
    8. Jenks (could go either way with EP)
    9. Bellevue West
    10. Birdville
    11-14 in no particular order:
    O'Fallon Township
    Lindbergh
    Kickapoo
    Rockwood Summit

    Rockwood Summit has been killing it in St. Louis. O'Fallon has been a pretty consistent contender. Lindbergh always holds music over Rockwood Summit and Kickapoo.

    3. Owasso, OK
    4. Blue Springs, MO
    5. Jenks, OK
    6. Prospect, IL
    7. Rosemount, MN
    8. Bentonville, AR
    9. Air Academy, CO
    10. Coweta, OK
    11. Birdville, TX
    12. Bellevue West, NE
    13. Lindbergh, MO
    14. Choctaw, OK

    If you're wondering why I have so many Oklahoma bands in there, it's because they're the only bands I've actually seen this year. So even if I'm biased, I still wouldn't be surprised if Coweta or Choctaw take a spot in finals, both have been looking very impressive. Jenks has been steadily getting better the past few years and this year is no exception. While they had some technical issues at the beginning of their show this past weekend, they still managed to steal the outstanding Music caption away from Union. I'm in love with Owasso's guard uniforms, but not a huge fan of their show. Should still place in the top 3.

    Bentonville is newish to BOA, but have the resources to become a real powerhouse over time. I may be mistaken about this, but I think the Fine Arts director at Broken Arrow took the same position over there a couple years ago with one of his goals being a world-class band program (including marching band).

    Bentonville is home to Walmart headquarters. Not the sticks. They have the resources to do really well with the right family support and leadership.
