The San Antonio Super Regional has once again caused some huge changes in the rankings this year. Super regional champion Claudia Taylor Johnson jumps up to the no. 1 spot, and many other Texas bands either slid up or down, depending on their placement. One thing to notice: multiple bands that missed finals at San Antonio can be found either ranked or in the Next 10, showing the magnitude of incredible bands in the Lone Star State.

American Fork's victory in St. George helped catapult them into the Next 10.

Stay tuned for another round of changes after Grand Nats!

  1. Why is Grand Nats in Indiana? It should be in TX (say ATT Stadium). It's become a joke!

  2. The Sant Antonio super regional has once again set a mark. This band is always going to rule People's hearts I believe.. the criteria for judging is very just and impartial. Waitingfor the next competition.
