Homestead H.S., IN (AAAA)


The Homestead Band is a consistent Grand National finalist, a consistent super regional finalist, and a recipient of the Sudler Shield.

In 2017, Homestead is expected to compete at the Toledo Regional, Indianapolis Super Regional, and Grand National Championships.

Homestead competed at the Indianapolis Super Regional and Grand National Championships.

At Indy Super, Homestead placed fifth in prelims before jumping to third in finals, right behind Avon and Carmel. Third place a week before Grand Nats would seem to guarantee a finals spot the next weekend, but that's not the case.

At Grand Nats, Homestead did earn a finals spot, but instead of a regular top 12 finals spot, they were the first ever 13th place semifinalist to advance to finals. They jumped two places in finals, to finish 11th overall, just one spot behind first-time Indiana finalist Castle.



2015

Homestead competed at the Indianapolis Super Regional and Grand National Championships.

It was another successful year for Homestead, making finals at both BOA events: top half at Indy Super and bottom half at Grand Nats. They compete every weekend in one of the hardest states in America, and this year's results are quite an accomplishment.



2014

When we first heard that Homestead would be returning to the BOA world, we were really excited. It's been 20 years since they last attended a BOA competition, but in those 20 years they have been consistently hanging with and even defeating top Indiana groups like Avon, Carmel, Lawrence Central, and Center Grove. In fact, since they left BOA, they've never been lower than fourth at the ISSMA state championships. While there is lots of murmuring about the difference between ISSMA judges sheets and BOA judges sheets, you have to be good to be able to beat Avon and Carmel at any competition.

Their first year back, Homestead competed at the Indianapolis Super Regional and Grand National Championships. This was their first time attending either of these competitions in over 20 years, so predicting how they will perform was very difficult. Not surprisingly, they were able to make finals at both events, but didn't defeat any group they weren't expected to defeat.
