CTJ Top 5 Again at BOA San Antonio
The Claudia Taylor Johnson Marching Band recorded its third-best score in program history during finals competition with a spirited and crowd-pleasing performance of its show, “Tremendous Sea of Love,” to finish in fifth place at the Bands of America San Antonio Super Regional Championship.
Johnson’s score of 94.725 in the familiar Alamodome venue continued the program’s incredible record of consistency in the super regional event — an eighth consecutive Top Five finish in what is considered one of the toughest competitions on the BOA schedule annually, earning it the nickname, “The Grand Nationals of the South.” Eight straight Top Five finishes ties Marcus (2005-2012) for the most in the event.
Flower Mound placed first out of the 14 finalist bands with a score of 96.600, followed by CTJ’s NEISD sister school Ronald Reagan (96.400), Hebron (96.050), and Vista Ridge (95.575).
Since 2014, only two schools have won the BOA San Antonio Super Regional — Flower Mound (2015, 2016, and 2018) and CTJ (2014 and 2017).
Johnson’s score in preliminary competition, 94.125, ranked as the fifth-best in program history. CTJ was fourth in Class AAAA and fourth overall heading into finals.
CTJ will perform next in the UIL 6A State Marching Contest preliminary competition at 7:15 p.m. on Monday back at the Alamodome.
