look at the facts... North Lamar and Argyle
For this past year, yes. First and Second.
Overall, I'd have to say Argyle and Canton have been more consistently in the top rankings.
Some bands have had success in the recent years due to good "crops" of band students,
while the bands which have long term success usually have good programs / directors,
including the middle school feeder program.
Some bands go throught cycles, have off and on years.
Not always coinciding with state years, either.
I saw N. Lamars's show, and really enjoyed it.
Atlanta had a good show, but cut down the field size with their props, too distracting for me.
P.G. had another good year, 2nd at Region, not well at state.
New Boston and QC are not 3A, but examples of good programs.
Lots of good talent in the area...
Looking forward to the Panther's show on Senior night.
