I don't know if there is a best band caption award, but I could definitely see Broken Arrow getting it at this competition.

I could see them getting best Vocals and Best Band

John Burroughs always has incredible vocals/arrangements. If Broken Arrow were to take a caption from them, I feel like it would be choreography, not vocals. California groups always tend to do very well at national competitions, so as of now I think a Powerhouse sweep is pretty much guaranteed, but you never know!

Broken Arrow could very well get best band though, especially if John Burroughs is ineligible for having adults, which might be the case.

If anything, the one group here I could maybe see taking vocals off of John Burroughs is Olentangy - they’re having a phenomenal year and have a lot of momentum coming into this contest. Otherwise I can’t see it going any other way than a Powerhouse sweep.

Tiger Rhythm has won Best Choreography off of Los Al before, although I'm a little unclear about how that worked since Los Al won Showmanship while TR won Best Choreo.

I do agree that it will be difficult for Tiger Rhythm to win that caption, but nothing is impossible

At some CA competitions, “Best Choreography” is a caption award given to a group with the most precise, creative, and stylistically appropriate movements. “Showmanship” is awarded to the choir with the highest visual scores overall. I hope that distinction makes sense. I admit it can be a little confusing for someone unfamiliar with SoCal show choir competitions. . (I remember having this exact conversation with supporters of an out-of-state choir at a competition years ago.)

Jackson Prep also took best choreo from Broken Arrow a few weekends ago.

I could see Burroughs being 1st for powerhouse and soundsensations taking second

If I’m not mistaken, HOA competitions do not take groups from the Womens division into finals thus, Soundsensations could not get second over a mixed group. However please correct me if I’m wrong!
