Broken Arrow earned the top spot in St. Louis, defeating former national medalist Blue Springs. A huge posse of Texas bands also made finals, though they weren't concentrated in any particular block of placements. Instead, bands like O'Fallon, Union, Camdenton, and Rosemount held their own against a state that can sometimes be so dominant.

At the Waco Regional, James Bowie earned an impressive and surprising victory over Keller. Bowie swept captions in prelims, but Keller came back to grab the music caption in finals. Both will be heading to the San Antonio Super Regional in two weeks, plenty of time for growth from either or both bands.
