There was an error made by the tabulations committee at Pekin and the Best Vocals and Best Choreography trophies were incorrectly awarded to Twinsburg at the preliminary awards ceremony. The two Twinsburg directors personally delivered the trophies to the Mundelein director as soon as the error was discovered. The Twinsburg and Mundelein students showed a great deal of class throughout a difficult situation.
From my perspective, this was one of the best groups of finalists I have ever experienced at a competition. The students and parents from every group seemed positive, supportive and friendly. I will truly miss MtZDad and his ever-present smile!
We are proud to have received the First Runner-Up trophy and congratulate Mundelein on a well-deserved Grand Championship.
It would be nice to see a competition thread that remained as positive as the kids at the competition.

Twinsburg got both Outstanding Choreo and Vocals in prelims.
I have to give major props to the Grand Champion soloist from Mundelin I think... he was awesome!! I was completely blown away!!!!
And congrats to all the show choirs!! This was one of my favorite comps I've been too!!
I wasn't there but I heard that there was a mistake in the calculations and mundelein actually won the captions but since they had already announced it they couldn't retract it. But congrats to all the choirs anyway, I hear it was a tough comp!

i definatly agree- i had never seen twinsburg before but after the show i was an instant fan!
I agree that all the Championship groups were a joy to watch - I wasn't sure who was going to end up on top, but I figured it would be Mundelein or Twinsburg. The only fault I found with Twinsburg was the choir's propensity to rush the combo. It seemed as if the combo must have had significant sequencing going on that didn't allow them to pick up the tempo at all. The choir had great energy, great vocals & diction (reminded me of Mt. Prospect 2 years ago), and tight choreography - a real class act. The combo's inability to adjust to the choir's energy was distracting to me in almost every song in the finals (less so in prelim's).
... sure would like another crack at Onalaska.

that's so sad about El Paso Gridley!!
But back to the comp, is anyone else surprised with the results?? i mean no offense to Mundeleine (I didnt get to see there show) but i thought twinsberg and & mtz would take gc and 1st ru for sure.
omg yeah i was totally agree, i was shocked with the results, and with the Single-Gender division i was sure the faces would win. but whatever...............seems a bit fishy to me, but u win some lose some
