In 2016, Avon will compete at the Indianapolis Super Regional and the Grand National Championships.

2015
Avon competed at the Dayton Regional, the Indianapolis Super Regional, and the Grand National Championships. It was a very successful year for the Marching Black and Gold, finishing first at Dayton and Indy, and second in Grand National Finals.

Because of weather, the finals competition at the Dayton Regional was cancelled, but Avon proved in prelims they were on track for a great season, beating Carmel by about one point, even with a half-point penalty because of prop height.

At the Indianapolis Super Regional, Avon pulled ahead of Carmel yet again, increasing the point spread with several weeks remaining until Grand Nats.

When Grand Nats arrived, Avon was in the right position for a win, but faced tough competition from Hebron and Broken Arrow, two groups that were also in position for a win. After placing third in prelims and semis, Avon placed second in finals.

Looking at the past few years of Avon performances, it appears that the Marching Black and Gold is gearing up to reclaim their spot at the top of the rankings and take home the Eagle. Who knows, next year could be the start of another three-peat.



2014
Avon competed at the Indianapolis Super Regional and the Grand National Championships. Originally, they were scheduled to attend the Toledo regional, but withdrew several weeks before the competition. Avon won the Indianapolis Super Regional and went into Grand Nats very well prepared. However, they faced some pretty tough competition from Tarpon Springs and Broken Arrow and ended up in 3rd place. Apparently futuristic robots are cooler than moths.



2013
Avon's Top 3 finish at Grand Nationals was well deserved, but from the stands, it was evident that their show required the most demand out of all of the bands in finals at Grand Nationals. Matt Harloff continues to work wonders with the Avon brass line, arguably the most powerful in BOA, and their force was felt throughout the ballad and into their closer. This group definitely has the talent and staff to win the Eagle and we wouldn't be surprised if this next season is the start of another three-peat.
