Indy Super Regional Predictions

Recommended Posts

My picks for finals in random order, kind of guessing and kind of not

Castle IN

Penn IN

Blue Springs MO

Avon IN

Carmel IN

O'Fallon IL

Homestead IN

Marian IL

Fishers?? IN

Grain Valley MO

North Hardin KY

Lincoln Way IL

Blue Springs South MO

14th spot ??

 

I  think Blue Springs or Avon will win

 It would be great if Lafayette or Madison Central KY would compete more in BOA events. Lafayette participated in the TN Regional and won

Paul Lawrence Dunbar KY  is rebuilding, I think there were some changes in their music program

Panel 1

Centerville

Lawrence

 

Panel 2

Blue Springs

O'fallon

Fishers

Castle

Lincoln-Way

 

Final 4 in:

It's been a banner year for many many marching bands. I'm glad we're having problems with coming up with bands to put in finals. This says something about the educators that have to do so much with so little support, for the most part, from the government. One day maybe legislators will see the value of music in our schools and what's learned is not only the music, playing an instrument or marching.

Don't count Carmel out.  They always seem to have something that they pull out of the hat at the last minute.

I don't, I've not seen any video of them other than the BOA Louisville Regional. There was a lot that could be added to that show. I had just seen Avon beat them, I think, last weekend

Lockport beat Blue SpringsSo, Mo by quite a bit in Iowa so I would pick them for finals.

I agree.  Based on their performance this past weekend, I would be very surprised if Lockport was not in finals this weekend.

What an awesome weekend of marching band in Indianapolis.  I was able to catch all of finals on Flo Marching as well as most IL bands in prelims.  I was sad to see Marian and Prospect miss out on finals.  I hope Marian can clean and refine to be able to push for a spot in GN finals, however, it's looking pretty bleak right now.  

Having said that, three cheers to Lockport, O'fallon and Lincoln-Way.  All three represented our state in finals with outstanding shows.  Congrats to Lockport for their first ever Indy Super Regional Finals appearance.  They have gotten soooo good over the past few years. Also, congrats to LW.  It's no small feat to finish in front of a band the caliber of Homestead, and they did it twice (prelims and finals).  It is going to be a real treat to see the continued development of Lockport and LW over the next few years.  I think they both could have a Grand National Finals appearance in their future.  

Congrats to all of the bands who just finished their season, what a banner year for IL marching band.  Good luck to all the bands continuing on to the coming weeks!
