Editor's note: On Nov. 5, 2016, at the San Antonio Super Regional, BOA announced corrections to these results. We have updated our results accordingly.

About
The 2016 Conroe Regional will be held Oct. 1 at Woodforest Bank Stadium. In 2015, after placing second in the prelims competition, Ronald Reagan was named regional champion.

Analysis
At the top, three groups will be battling for the title: Claudia Taylor Johnson, Ronald Reagan, and The Woodlands. All three of these groups have consistently seen success at just about every event they attend and are no strangers to winning. After CTJ's third place finish last week, we think Ronald Reagan will grab the top spot here at Conroe followed closely by Johnson, with The Woodlands in third.

The rest of the top half we expect to include Hendrickson and Winston Churchill. Winston Churchill beat Hendrickson by 2.8 points in prelims and then by only 0.6 points in finals last weekend at Austin. We think Hendrickson will keep pushing and be able to take a step ahead of Churchill.

The bottom half will include several returning finalists: Brazoswood, Oak Ridge, and Pearland. While none of these groups are guaranteed a finals spot, the low number of returning finalists gives them a good chance.

Our last two in finals are James E. Taylor and The Woodlands College Park. While there are several other groups that could also grab these last two spots and have even beaten these two in the past, we think College Park and Taylor are in the best position to make finals. College Park made finals and placed third in 2014 at the Conroe Regional, so it's only logical to think they've learned from last year and are ready to return to finals. Taylor has been consistently just outside of finals and this could be the year they finally make the move into the night show.

  1. It's nice to see my band's name up there (James E Taylor). I feel like this is our year and obviously everyone wants to say that and make themselves fee good, but as subjectively as possible we're getting damn good. Our "new" director who we got 3 years ago has finally made the bands culture fully his with out the influence of the old ways. This cultural shift has improved our efficiency emensly. We're 2 weeks ahead of where we were last year. Not only that but we were also on the edge of qualifying for state honors band so there's something to be said about that. Lastly we were within shooting distance at the Lone Star Preview of SFA last year with best in music and percussion. Granted we don't absolutely fall apart on the field, as humbly as I can say, I wouldn't be surprised if we place in the low middle 5-8
