About
The 2015 Long Beach Regional was held Oct. 24 at Veterans Memorial Stadium on the campus of Long Beach City College. Ayala beat second place Upland by over three points.

Analysis
With Cedar Ridge not in attendance this year, this competition becomes was much less exciting and returned to the guarantee of Ayala's dominance.

Upland and Vista Murrieta were very evenly matched competitors and could work their way up to challenge Ayala over the next couple of years.

The rest of finals was about as scattered as we predicted. With so many new and returning groups and the addition of the American Canyon Regional, we had no idea what would happen.

We’re excited to see the growth of this regional over the past couple of years. In fact, this regional has grown so much that even with about 8 groups dropping out to compete at the new Northern California regional in American Canyon, this regional still has a very healthy enrollment when compared to other regionals to the east.

Predictions
  1. Ayala H.S., CA
  2. Vista Murrieta H.S., CA
  3. Upland H.S., CA
  4. Fountain Valley H.S., CA
  5. Foothill H.S., NV
  6. Desert Vista H.S., AZ
  7. Arroyo H.S., CA
  8. Montwood H.S., TX
  9. El Dorado H.S., TX
  10. Trabuco Hills H.S., CA

  1. I'm sure this is killing a lot of you and not just myself....

    ONE judge ranked Vista Murrieta in 6th place. REALLY? 6th? For all of us who were there and watched the finals, could any one single person claim Vista Murrieta was a 6th place performance? No doubt Upland had an amazing show and a great performance, I really liked them in fact, so I am not at all discounting their 2nd place victory. I am just calling out the obvious here... even if this one judge would have ranked Vista Murrieta in 4th place, they would have still taken 2nd place. But he ranked them in 6th place knocking them down to 3rd and I'm sorry, but that was highway robbery!

    Again, I would have never doubted Upland taking 2nd place from watching their amazing performance but common now, with fair scoring across the board. I live in LA county, no where near Vista Murrieta, and even I feel bad for them.
