13. Wando H.S., SC (AAAA)



The Wando High School Band is a consistent Grand National finalist and a recipient of the Sudler Flag.

In 2017, Wando is expected to compete at the Atlanta Regional.

Wando competed at the Atlanta Super Regional and Grand National Championships.

In Atlanta, Wando began to eat away at Tarpon's long-held dominance of the Southeast. Absent a trip by Broken Arrow, Tarpon has historically swept captions, if not the entire adjudication panel. This year, Wando beat Tarpon in both the music and visual caption, closing the margin of victory to just over a single point.

At Grand Nats, Wando gave three outstanding performances, receiving ninth place in semifinals and improving on that in finals to finish eighth overall. That was right between Ronald Reagan and Claudia Taylor Johnson, two outstanding groups from Texas.

Wando was scheduled to compete at the Jacksonville Regional and Atlanta Super Regional, but due to flooding, was only able to compete at Atlanta.

The Jacksonville regional could have been a pretty easy victory for Wando. The only other band who would have given them a run for their money was Kennesaw Mountain, but the flooding in South Carolina cause Wando to lose not days but weeks of rehearsal time and prevented their travel to Jacksonville.

That lost rehearsal time would follow them to Atlanta, where they placed 10th, much lower than in years past. We believe this year was the exception, not the rule and expect Wando to be much better in 2016 as they head back to Grand Nats. Odd are, another flood of the century won't get in their way two years in a row.

2014
Wando competed at the Atlanta Super Regional and Grand National Championships. We were excited to see Wando at the Atlanta regional because Tarpon, Harrison, and Mason were all also competing. Wando finished the lowest of this group, just a quarter of a point behind Harrison and finished seventh at Grand Nats just a few weeks later. It was a very successful season for Wando, and we hope that they'll continue to attend Grand Nats at a much greater frequency.



2013
Wando's 90 at the Atlanta Super Regional and third place finish was sadly the only time we saw this band at a BOA event last year, but their consistent Top 6 finishes at Atlanta would've made them a likely finalist at Grand Nats last season. Usually band director transitions are rough and take a couple of years to recover from, but Bobby Lambert appears to have transitioned rather smoothly from Marian Catholic to Wando. Under his direction, we're expecting big things from Wando.
