I believe prep groups went like this:

Jefferson
Prairie
Xavier
IC High
Fort Madison

Pretty sure CRJ Ovation swept the captions as well...


yeah, ovation got best choreo, vocals, band and female soloist. maybe more? idk. It was a fun comp tho. I wish finals wouldn't have been cancelled. It'd be interesting to see how the things would have ended with second performances.

Congrats Jefferson what a great day! Ovation amazing job placing in the top six great job and sweeping your division. Westside what can I say it took four long years for you to have your moment and it finally came. After the last few rough weeks I am glad you all came together! Congrats again Jefferson....Job well done!

Here's what I know from this competition, correct me if I'm wrong:

Prairie was 3 points away from Xavier. Xavier was 3 points away from Jefferson. Xavier was also 1/2 point away from Prairie for Best Vocals.

I didn't get to see Prairie or WSD, but I heard that all three of our shows were extremely close together and could have been put in any order as far as placement. I really feel like this was a competition where finals would have brought out the best in every group... but you can't control the weather.

Can't wait to see Jefferson at the Kennedy Invitational.

Does a prep group automatically make finals here at benton????


Back when I used to compete there the top scoring 2A/3A show choir made finals along with the top 5 overall scorers. I don't know if that is still the case. To my knowledge, there has never been a rule saying the top prep group makes finals.
