Saturday, October 13 Predictions, Discussions and Results

Recommended Posts

Some big shows coming up this weekend. I'm working on some predictions that I'll get posted later. This weekend (Lincoln Way and DGS) will give us a better look at what happens at ISU on October 20th.

Okay here we go:

 

It's a big weekend in Illinois marching band. Groups are starting to wrap up this weekend and we're seeing mostly complete shows on the field.

 

Effingham

Effingham hosts 21 bands this weekend for the annual Marching Hearts Invitational. Lots of central Illinois bands are here this weekend. In Class 1A, look for Okaw Valley and Heritage to be in the top two spots. My prediction for the class 2A winner is Watseka. In 3A Newton is my pick for GC and class champion (with Paris second in class). In class 4A, Mt. Zion is my pick based on scores so far this season.

McKendree

McKendree is hosting their second show this year. This is their second year hosting their Small Marching Band Championship show. No results posted from last year and I can’t find a schedule for this year.

 

SIU Music and Motion

No schedule for this show, but Dunlap has ben GC at this show quite frequently in recently. A quick check shows they are headed there again. Depending on who else is there, they could certainly be looking to repeat as GC.

 

Providence Catholic

A wonderful small band in the state, Providence Catholic hosts 15 bands for their show on their turf field. Herscher, Bremen, Wheaton North, and Brother Rice/Mother McAuley are all performing at both Providence Catholic, and Lincoln-Way. My picks for class winners are: Wheaton Warrenville South (1A), Wheaton North (2A), and VJA (3A and GC).

 

Lincoln-Way

Hosted by the combined Lincoln-Way marching band, the show is run on the campus of Lincoln-Way West this year. There are 25 bands performing in competition, including Warren Central from Indiana. In Class A look for Dwight D. Eisenhower to win the class in their 7th competitive performance of the year.  In Class 2A, I think ti could goa couple different ways. My gut says Buffalo Grove (only their second year doing competitive marching band), but Geneseo could win the class. Class 3A, I think Marian Catholic, Lockport, and Warren Central take the top three spots. Conventional thought would say Marian wins the class and GC.

 

Downers Grove South

Downers Grove South hosts one of only a few prelims/finals competitions in Illinois. 22 bands are performing at DGS in prelims, including both bands from the Chicago suburbs and central Illinois. I predicts Class 1A goes to Naperville North. In Class 2A I’ll go with Batavia who was GC last year. Class 3A is phenomenally tough to call. Many of the 3A bands have not seen each other at the same shows yet this year. Plainfield North is a major factor with strong performances at LP, VJA and Plainfield South this year. Washington has had a great season at central Illinois shows so far and I would keep and eye on them. You can never count out Lake Park. Bloomington is a great playing band, and is a strong contender wherever they go. Normal has only competed once so far this season about a month ago, but could be a player here. In exchange for not settling on a class winner in 3A, I’ll predict who makes finals. Finals at DGS is 10 bands (3 Class winners + next 7 scores). Here are my 10 finalist predictions: Naperville North, Batavia, Plainfield North, Washington, Lake Park, Bloomington, Normal, Rock Island, Warren Township, Lemont.

Hoooo boy, it's getting exciting now! One week left until state comp(s). Getting ready for DGS. I didn't know SIU had a competition even though they moved it a week earlier this year.

I just saw a parent from Anna-Jonesboro post that they got best drum major, best color guard, and first overall in their division at SIU-Carbondale, but no official scores.   If confirmed, this would be the best Anna-Jonesboro has ever done at SIU.  I live in Jonesboro, and have seen them outside, they have been working really hard lately preparing, and had a not so great outing at Carterville, so I'm sure they were looking to make up for that.

I keep hunting for results of Illinois Competitions and can't find any other than what's here

Yeah, I've been unable to find anything else. Don't personally have access to our email if anything is in there. I'm sure we'll have it mostly up Monday.
