Top 30 Rankings — Oct. 11, 2016 (Week 5)

This week, we see a new group in the top position following an exceptional performance at the Plano Regional.

Flower Mound wowed everyone in attendance and watching online with both their prelims and finals performances. They are way ahead of any other group at this point in the season. We're just sad they aren't going back to Grand Nats anytime soon.

Another notable change caused by Plano Regional performances is the Marcus Band's jump from 15th place to eighth place after impressing judges and stepping ahead of Hebron.

Outside of Texas, Rosemount makes their debut on the Top 30 after winning another Youth in Music champion title. The beat Eden Prairie and several other Minnesota groups in advance of their St. Louis appearance in a little over a week.
