Middle School results
1st) Polyphics (BV)
2nd) Carthage (BC)

The crowd was cheering too loud for me to hear who the female solo went to.

My predictions
Pleasant Hill Hillside Singers- Top three
Carthage Soundwave- Top three
Neosho Choraleers- Top three
DoMENance- Fourth Overall
Powerhouse- Fifth Overall
Suite Sounds- Sixth Overall

I think top three will be very close.

Anybody have a line up for this competition? I heard Hollister would be coming! I’m also curious if Broken Arrow TR will come back and try to claim 1st again.

I’m assuming Carthage, Neosho, Webb, and Pleasant Hill will be coming since I know the four groups I mentioned attend this one occasionally.
It’ll definitely be one to watch!
