Hebron competed at the Bedford Regional and the San Antonio Super Regional.

Coming off an exciting first super regional champion title in 2021, Hebron jumped straight back to the top of the charts by sweeping captions and earning a decisive victory in Bedford.

In San Antonio, Hebron continued to bring the heat, winning a second consecutive super regional champion. The group swept captions in prelims but lost the general effect caption to The Woodlands in finals.


Hebron competed at the Dallas Regional and San Antonio Super Regional.

In Dallas, Hebron held a tight margin behind Flower Mound, with the music caption continuing to be their greatest strength. Hebron tied Flower Mound for the music caption in both prelims and finals.

In San Antonio, Hebron earned a relatively decisive victory, sweeping captions in finals. This was the group's first ever super regional champion title. Though perhaps more impressive was their ability to win in both prelims and finals. It's almost become routine for the prelims champion to slide back a placement or two in finals.

Hebron kicked off their season with a second-place finish at the Bedford Regional behind Flower Mound. While they didn't manage to grab a caption in finals, Hebron did win the music caption during prelims.

In San Antonio, Hebron earned fifth place, maintaining their position as one of the best in Texas.

As tends to always happen, Hebron improved their placement from San Antonio to Grand Nats, earning third place nationally. Hebron also took the music caption in finals from national champion and fellow Texas band Vandegrift.

Hebron competed at the Bedford Regional and San Antonio Super Regional.

In Bedford, Hebron again found themselves narrowly behind district rival Flower Mound. Hebron earned second place in finals just four tenths away from first place. Hebron also won the music caption in both prelims and finals.

Hebron retained their musical dominance in San Antonio, winning the music caption in both prelims and finals. Overall, the band finished third, behind Flower Mound and Ronald Reagan.


Hebron competed at the Southlake Regional and San Antonio Super Regional.

In Southlake, Hebron found themselves initially behind district rival Flower Mound, with FloMo winning all captions during prelims. However, Hebron had a much better performance in finals and that showed when they were announced with the highest score. The band was named regional champion, winning two captions outright and tying for general effect.

The opposite sequence happened in San Antonio. Hebron won Class AAAA in prelims, setting them up to potentially earn a first super regional champion title. But in finals, Hebron slipped to second and CTJ took the top spot.

Hebron competed at the Plano Regional and the San Antonio Super Regional.

At the Plano Regional, Hebron earned third place, finishing out the Lewisville ISD trio with Flower Mound and Marcus in first and second places. They were excellent musically, but their visual program held them back a little bit.

At San Antonio, Hebron managed to be on the winning side of a 0.05 point gap for the first time in several years. In finals, they scored ahead of Marcus by the same gap that separated Hebron from a super regional champion title in 2013.


Hebron competed at the Arlington Regional, the San Antonio Super Regional, and the Grand National Championships. This year, Hebron proved they have mastered the art of getting so close, but not winning.

At the Arlington Regional, the placed second to Flower Mound by only 0.10 points. It was a great place to begin the season and showed Hebron was still in the running to have a great showing at San Antonio and Grand Nats.

Then San Antonio came around and placed fourth behind Flower Mound, Ronald Reagan, and Claudia Taylor Johnson. But Hebron was the only group in the top six headed to Grand Nats, so while every other group's season was coming to an end, Hebron still had two more weeks to perfect the show.

Finally, Grand Nats came around and Hebron had a great show in prelims, won the semifinals competition, and then finished third in finals. Would they have won if the performance times were different? Maybe. Would they have won if the judges were different? Maybe.

There are many theories of what might have happened if certain variables were different, but regardless, Hebron had an incredible 2015 season and it's hard to imagine this group leaving the national conversation anytime soon.

Hebron competed at the Denton regional and the San Antonio Super Regional.

We weren't surprised to see Hebron winning the Denton regional, but we were surprised to see the San Antonio results. Not only did they lose to The Woodlands by 0.05 points yet again, they were also 4 places lower than last year. In 2015, we're expecting Hebron to make the trip to Grand Nats, but if the can't continue the level of excellence they set in 2013, we'd expect a finish in the lower half of finals. If they can continue that level of excellence, they could easily be in the running for a national champion title.


Hebron shocked the BOA world this season in an upset victory at the Allen Regional in October over big names like Marcus and LD Bell, then continued their success with a stunning Class AAAA championship at San Antonio in prelims and a runner-up finish in finals, losing by just 0.05 points to The Woodlands, who went on to become BOA's 2013 national champion and the only band that defeated Hebron in any round of BOA competition this season. Hebron's 2013 show was Will's personal favorite of the BOA season, with its incredibly intricate design, and features of insanely isolated parts within each section of their brass line. They entertained a trip to Grand Nats in 2013 before ultimately deciding against it, but we think that if they were in attendance in Indianapolis, they just might have pulled out a win against The Woodlands. This season is going to be a tough act to follow for the 2014 Hebron High School Band. The question now becomes whether or not they can sustain this level of success and remain a national power for years to come.
