About
The 2015 Conroe Regional was held Oct. 3 at Woodforest Bank Stadium. After placing second in the prelims competition, Ronald Reagan was named regional champion, winning the general effect caption and tying Claudia Taylor Johnson for the visual caption.

Analysis
The Conroe Regional at Woodforest Bank Stadium has been a staple in the Bands of America fall schedule since 2010. During this tenure, some of the best groups in the nation have made regular appearances at this event. This year was no different.

Claudia Taylor Johnson hoped to defend their title from the 2014 edition of this event and The Woodlands hoping to regain the title they earned in their National Champion season in 2013, but neither of those groups were able to achieve that goal. Instead, Ronald Reagan came away with the title.

The Woodlands might have come back in finals and placed first, but we'll never know. Unfortunately, they had a scheduling conflict with a high school football game that required them to miss the finals competition.

Several groups really surprised us with their placements. For example, The Woodlands College Park missed finals. In 2014, College Park placed ahead of Ronald Reagan, Brazoswood, Stephen F. Austin, and many other groups who made finals this year.

Ordinal Predictions
  1. Claudia Taylor Johnson H.S., TX
  2. The Woodlands H.S., TX
  3. Ronald Reagan H.S., TX
  4. The Woodlands College Park HS, TX
  5. Brazoswood H.S., TX
  6. Keller H.S., TX
  7. Cedar Ridge H.S., TX
  8. Cypress Falls H.S., TX
  9. Stephen F. Austin H.S., TX
  10. Winston Churchill H.S., TX

  2. I don't think the Woodlands would have come back and done anything different in Finals. They didn't win a single caption in Prelims and performed right before Reagan, meaning the Judges got a good comparison when scoring (at least) those two groups.

  3. College Park was out done in the visual GE caption. I hope they can recover in time for San Antonio
