I did find out how it went in prelims, and this is what it was:
Loved this competition - it was a great way to start off the season.
For what I saw:
PBL has really gone leaps and bounds this year. If they add a full band and a costume change, I think that they could very easily become a great group in the next few years.
Manteno was quite awesome. I loved the show - it is very cool. Vocals were great as always, as well as choreography. Can't wait to see how you do in the future.
O'Fallon's show was very, very cool. They had some awesome dancing, and it was technical. You really were kept in the mood watching them. I think if they can get their vocals tightened up they should do pretty well this year.
Danville, where the heck did you come from? You guys were phenomenal! Great vocal sound, great choreography! A very well deserved GC for the day. I can't wait to see how you progress over the season.
As for Faces and Cavs, you have some really cool shows this year! I'm really excited to see how well you will do this year - I'm sure it will be another fantastic year for you as well.
That's all I really got to see, but I heard Eisenhower was fantastic as always. I want to thank everyone at Crete Monee for putting on a fabulous competition - one of my favorites in my four years. I cannot wait to see how everyone progresses throughout the year. I'd also like to thank everyone for the kind comments about Pekin - they are greatly appreciated and I'm glad that you all enjoyed the show. For those of you headed to Mt. Zion Saturday, I will see you there! And one again, congrats to Danville on a full sweep of the competition, with taking home Junior High, Single-Gender, and Mixed Division GCs! See you all again soon!

Only a few days until Illinois has it's first competition of the season.... Haha I'm pretty stoked. Still nothing on a few predictions or expectations? There's 5 spots in finals for any high school group.
Looks to be a good competition. So far, the list is O'Fallon, Manteno, Herscher, Clifton Central, Danville, Pekin, Alan B. Shepard, Springfield Southeast, Rolling Meadows, and Decatur Eisenhower. Any other groups coming? Who's pumped? Let's start this topic!
