FINAL U of I PREDICTION

Recommended Posts

CLASS 2A COMPETITION

  1. Illinois Valley Central
  2. Effingham
  3. Prarie Central

CLASS 3A COMPETITION

  1. Mahomet-Seymour
  2. Monticello
  3. Rochelle Township

CLASS 1A COMPETITION

  1. Wateska Community
  2. Rushville-Industry
  3. Sullivan

SMALL SCHOOLS CHAMPION: Mahomet-Seymour

 

CLASS 5A COMPETITION

  1. Granite City
  2. Plainfield North
  3. Batavia

CLASS 6A COMPETITION

  1. Downers Grove South
  2. Normal
  3. Minooka Community

CLASS 4A COMPETITION

  1. Galesburg
  2. Bloomington
  3. Washington Community

LARGE SCHOOL CHAMPION: I am conflicted here. For the first time in a long time ALL of these first place bands have a good chance to win grand champion. My gut says Granite City, but then you see Downers Grove South and Galesburg in the other top spots who can certainly upset Granite City. Then you look beyond first place and see Plainfield North who can upset Granite City and win Grand Champion and also Normal and Bloomington in the second spots who could win first and take Grand Champion.

 

If I had to rank them out it would look something like this;

  1. Granite City
  2. Plainfield North
  3. Downers Grove South
  4. Galesburg
  5. Bloomington
  6. Normal

These 6 bands will probably (pending nice weather and good performances) dominate the large school championship. ANY of these 6 could win the Governors Trophy in my opinion.

Updated schedule.  If you find the warm up and performance schedule on the IMBC website it is correct.  The other schedule posted on the page is incorrect.

Richmond Burton is moved to 3A

Pontiac moved to 2A

Mater Del moved to 1A

I like Downers Grove South a lot.  I think they have a solid chance of taking the governors trophy.  I feel like they were a victim of the really bad performance slot and a panel that did not manage numbers very well in prelims this past weekend at ISU.
