In 2016, Hebron will be competing at the Plano Regional and the San Antonio Super Regional.

2015
Hebron competed at the Arlington Regional, the San Antonio Super Regional, and the Grand National Championships. This year, Hebron proved they have mastered the art of getting so close, but not winning.

At the Arlington Regional, the placed second to Flower Mound by only 0.10 points. It was a great place to begin the season and showed Hebron was still in the running to have a great showing at San Antonio and Grand Nats.

Then San Antonio came around and placed fourth behind Flower Mound, Ronald Reagan, and Claudia Taylor Johnson. But Hebron was the only group in the top six headed to Grand Nats, so while every other group's season was coming to an end, Hebron still had two more weeks to perfect the show.

Finally, Grand Nats came around and Hebron had a great show in prelims, won the semifinals competition, and then finished third in finals. Would they have won if the performance times were different? Maybe. Would they have won if the judges were different? Maybe.

There are many theories of what might have happened if certain variables were different, but regardless, Hebron had an incredible 2015 season and it's hard to imagine this group leaving the national conversation anytime soon.



2014
Hebron competed at the Denton regional and the San Antonio Super Regional. We weren't surprised to see Hebron winning the Denton regional, but we were surprised to see the San Antonio results. Not only did they lose to The Woodlands by 0.05 points yet again, they were also 4 places lower than last year. In 2015, we're expecting Hebron to make the trip to Grand Nats, but if the can't continue the level of excellence they set in 2013, we'd expect a finish in the lower half of finals.

2013
Hebron shocked the BOA world this season in an upset victory at the Allen Regional in October over big names like Marcus and LD Bell, then continued their success with a stunning Class AAAA championship at San Antonio in prelims and a runner-up finish in finals, losing by just 0.05 points to The Woodlands, who went on to become BOA's 2013 national champion and the only band that defeated Hebron in any round of BOA competition this season. Hebron's 2013 show was Will's personal favorite of the BOA season, with its incredibly intricate design, and features of insanely isolated parts within each section of their brass line. They entertained a trip to Grand Nats in 2013 before ultimately deciding against it, but we think that if they were in attendance in Indianapolis, they just might have pulled out a win against The Woodlands. This season is going to be a tough act to follow for the 2014 Hebron High School Band. The question now becomes whether or not they can sustain this level of success and remain a national power for years to come.
