Welcome to Waco! We are at the Waco ISD Stadium for BOA Waco! The last time that there was a major marching competition in Waco was 16 years ago with 2002 UIL State which is infamous for being rained out.
This isn't the first time that BOA has held an event in Waco; 1997's final BOA competition in TX was held at Baylor's Floyd Casey Stadium just one year after UIL State was first held there. At that competition, Winston Churchill set the highest BOA Regional score and that record held for 10 years until Marcus broke the record at 2007 BOA San Antonio.
Of the 25 bands competing today, 2 of them competed in the 1997 BOA Waco (Berkner and Robinson)! We also have 3 BOA Grand National Finalists, 3 UIL State Champions, and 3 of today's bands are in the Top-30 of HornRank's most recent poll!
