8 seed: Round Rock 2013, Elemental Evolution, 93.95, 4th at Grand Nationals
6 seed: Flower Mound 2015, Surreal, 92.75, Won San Antonio
Round Rock’s first appearance at Grand Nationals was in 2013, and they left Indianapolis with a 4th place finish, a music caption victory in Semifinals, a Rose Bowl bid, and a thoroughly enjoyable show. They are now one of the country’s beloved programs, and this show was a large part of their ascent to national recognition. Flower Mound asserted their place as a national powerhouse program in 2015, winning San Antonio and jumping from 44th in individual music at San Antonio in 2013 to winning the music caption (in prelims) just two years later. We’re excited about this group’s future; “Surreal” may be just the beginning of consistent world class performances for Flower Mound.
Make sure to also vote in the third round of the Copland Region, the Reich Region, and the Barber Region.
