ISU Finalists Over the Years

Recommended Posts

Thought this would be interesting to share.  We do not have 1994-1997 results (if anyone has those, post them or email them to me), so this goes through 1993 and picks back up in 1998.  This will all be added to the bands' pages in time.

 

There have been a number of finalist changes over the years.

1977-Six Finalists.

1978-1986: 5 Finalists from Classes D-C-B, 5 from A-AA.=10.

1987-1993: Top 10 overall.

1994 (?)-2009:  All champions make finals.  Bands added on as need be.

2010, 2011: Class Champions from 1A-4A, next 3 highest scoring, Class 5A-6A Champions, next 5 highest scoring in those classes.

Hey Dan,

 

I remember there was a list last year of all Illinois bands that had made Grand National Semi Finals and Finals.  Would you be able to repost/update that or point me to where I could find it on the site?

If anyone has old U of I or ISU recaps lying around, would you consider scanning them and sending them to us?  I would love to get all old U of I and ISU scores up-U of I would be a bit easier to get than ISU.
