1 seed: The Woodlands 2013, Crossing Boundaries, 96.80, Won Grand Nationals
5 seed: Hebron 2013, World of Wonder, 92.65, 2nd at San Antonio
The Woodlands’ first Grand National Championship victory was well deserved when “Crossing Boundaries” posted a 96.80 in Indianapolis, just weeks after a narrow first place finish at the San Antonio Super Regional. In round two, they face off against the school they beat by only 0.05 at San Antonio, Hebron 2013's "World of Wonder." This Texas matchup features two incredibly powerful hornlines and well designed shows that have been serious competitors long before this bracket competition.
3 seed: Broken Arrow 2006, Aqua, 96.75, Won Grand Nationals
7 seed: Claudia Taylor Johnson 2014, Chameleon, 93.35, Won San Antonio
Proving once and for all that San Antonio is more competitive than Grand Nats (don't get mad at us, it's just a joke), Claudia Taylor Johnson, the 2014 San Antonio champion, beat Tarpon Springs, the 2014 Grand National and Atlanta champion. In the second round, CTJ is matched up with Broken Arrow 2006, the infamously shocking upset as the school that had missed finals only one year prior to their 2006 Grand National champion title.
Make sure to also vote in the second round of the Copland Region, the Shostakovich Region, and the Barber Region.
