CTJ capped its 2021 marching season with its fourth appearance as a national finalist at the Bands of America (BOA) Grand National Championships in Indianapolis. Johnson's performance of its 2021 show, "Opposites Attract," was a fun, energetic crowd-pleaser that was awarded a national seventh-place finish out of 99 competing bands.
The performance completed a whirlwind regular season competition schedule. Just days earlier, CTJ finished 8th at the Texas UIL 6A State Marching Contest, and three days prior to that the band garnered its 18th BOA medalist placement with a third-place finish at the BOA San Antonio Super Regional.
Johnson also won its second UIL Area D championship (advancing to state) and its 14th consecutive UIL Region sweepstakes award.
CTJ was awarded six captions in competition during the season, bringing its total to 71 in program history.
