I only got to see day show, but I just want to say Medina was insane during the day show. I was so impressed, and I love where they took their show to this year. The group is so talented, and I think they deserve more recognition than they tend to get. I'm excited to see where this show takes them this year! I can't wait to see how this competition turns out.. It was great to see all of these groups, and they all really killed it!
I only arrived in time for Teays Valley, but here are my predictions based on what I saw.
GC: Medina / Findlay
1 RU: Findlay / Medina
2 RU: Piqua
3 RU: Strongsville
4 RU: Teays Valley
5 RU: South Dearborn (didn’t see them, this is just a guess)
Medina / Findlay - Medina shook me. They were absolutely incredible both vocally and visually, especially for how early in the season it is. Findlay is a formidable foe though, so I don’t think a Medina GC is necessarily guaranteed.
Piqua - sad I missed them! I heard their show was super good
Strongsville - super impressive improvement from when I saw them at their festival! I loved the ballad.
Teays Valley - the opener soloist was incredible. Also I loved the crowd interaction at the end of the show!
South Dearborn - I didn’t actually see them, so this is just kinda a guess lol
Ada has always been one of the first competitions of the year. This one, and Bluffton Street Fair are two of the longest running fall competitions. Southmont also used to be a long standing fall completion before they stopped.
GC: Findlay "First Edition" (Sweep)
1RU: Medina "Encore Entertainment Company"
2RU: Piqua "The Company"
3RU: Teays Valley "Prominent Rendition"
4RU: South Deaborn "Opening Knight"
5RU: Strongsville "Mustang Express"
Good luck to all competing!!
