About
The 2015 Jacksonville Regional was held Oct. 10 at Burgess-Snow Field on the campus of Jacksonville State University. Kennesaw Mountain won over East Coweta by over four points in both prelims and finals.

Analysis
Unfortunately, Wando and two other South Carolina bands withdrew from this regional just a few days before the competition took place because of the severe flooding throughout South Carolina. We would have loved to see how Kennesaw Mountain and Wando matched up especially with Kennesaw's absence from Atlanta this year, but we didn't get that opportunity.

With Wando out, the title went to Kennesaw without any struggle. Kennesaw was ranked first by every single judge in both rounds of competition.

East Coweta and Hillgrove were extremely close in prelims with Hillgrove placing ahead by only 0.35 points. In finals, East Coweta placed ahead of Hillgrove even though they receive a 1.00 point penalty.

There were many other strong groups who performed throughout the day, but those are the three we are expecting great things from for the rest of the season, especially East Coweta and Hillgrove competing at the Atlanta Super Regional.

Ordinal Predictions
  1. Kennesaw Mountain H.S., GA
  2. East Coweta H.S., GA
  3. Flanagan H.S., FL
  4. Ooltewah H.S., TN
  5. Hoover H.S., AL
  6. Fred J. Page H.S., TN
  7. Kell H.S., GA
  8. River Ridge H.S., GA
  9. Ola H.S., GA
  10. Hillgrove H.S., GA

  1. River Bluff is the fastest growing program in SC under Ken Turner. I'd expect a strong showing.

  2. Unfortunate that Wando had to withdraw, but it means that my local East Coweta band is more apt to a top 3 finish and class championship.

  3. I see Hoover as major dark horse that could exceed all expectations this weekend.

  5. EC had an electronics problem in finals, but the performance itself was very, VERY good.

    1. East Coweta had a 1 point deduction from the electronic failure but they did have an amazing run and it was well deserved were they placed.
