With that, just as quickly as it started, October is in the books.
And if you’re a Bands of America follower, it’s been a fun October. October is often the busiest month of the fall band season, given that it’s the only month that tends to have contests from start to finish, and it ended on a high note in BOA circles with a trio of events.
Here’s the rundown:
In Texas’ last BOA event before the behemoth San Antonio Super Regional, an 83-band showdown looming November 4-5 at the Alamodome, Cedar Park earned a strong victory, outscoring the field by 1.60 points, sweeping captions and winning Class AAA.
Cedar Park fended off Class AAAA winner and second-place finisher Moe & Gene Johnson (89.900) for the overall title.
Competition, though, was generally close throughout, with several close finishes unfolding down the leaderboard. Rouse (3rd, 88.250) and Leander (4th, 87.550) went neck-and-neck for a top-three position, both holding onto their respective Prelims placements.
While McKinney North (6th, 85.350) closed its gap on Aledo (5th, 85.700) from Prelims to Finals, ultimately both bands’ placements held. Argyle, the day’s Class AA champion eighth overall with a mark of 82.000, While Class A went to Meridian.

In its final BOA appearance before heading to Grand Nationals in two weeks — a year removed from its eighth-place finish in 2021 — Dobyns-Bennett took top marks in Jacksonville and nearly cracked 90 points. The same weekend a year ago, the familiar finalist contender earned a score of 90.950.
The Tennessee band held a solid margin of 1.60 points over the field, while also bringing home a Class AAA title and all three overall caption awards. The day’s Class AAAA champion, James F. Byrnes, snagged second with an 88.000.
The top three, scoring-wise, ran the show in Alabama, with third-place Bartlett (86.400) separated from fourth-place Hernando (83.750), which won Class AA.
Also, how about a tie? A pair of schools finished deadlocked for fifth-place overall, as Kennesaw Mountain and Harrison both earned a final score of 82.590. Class A went the way of Signal Mountain (TN).

A familiar name especially in percussion circles, Dartmouth earned top marks at Saturday’s BOA New Jersey Regional Championship, held at Rutgers University, with a first-place score of 83.600 amongst a litany of East Coast bands.
Dartmouth, the day’s Class AA champion, won the visual caption outright while splitting general effect with and conceding music to fellow AA band, Norwin (2nd, 83.250) — a popular name in the indoor color guard realm. The two served as the closest finish of the weekend, split by just 0.35 points.
Continuing the trend of close finishes in Piscataway, New Jersey, the event’s Class AAAA (John P. Stevens, 80.900) and AAAA (James Madison, 80.800) champions were separated by just one-tenth for third and fourth place overall. The two had been flipped in Prelims; ultimately, John P. Stevens’ music performance scores made the difference, making up for a significant deficit in General Effect.
A point and a half back from there, Downingtown West — which earned second place in Class AAA — rounded out the top five, scoring 79.300. Immaculata (NJ) represented well in its home state, earning a Class A title.

Opening day is behind us and the high school baseball season is now in full swing. What are some of the notable takeaways from the first week? Let’s take a look.
The Eagles went undefeated and won a 4A state championship last season, becoming only the fourth team in state history to accomplish the feat. After one week, Argyle is still undefeated, though any chance at a perfect season has been ruled out.
The Eagles, ranked as the No. 1 team in the country by Perfect Game, tied 4-4 with Corpus Christi Ray on Friday in Laredo.
Argyle was dominant in its other four games to start the year. The Eagles won all four and outscored opponents 38-16.

The latest news, analysis, predictions and more for each season.
Every year, Texas and California churns out some of the best teams and players in the country. This weekend Southlake Carroll, the defending 6A champions, headed west and got a firsthand look at some of the best California has to offer.
The Dragons faced Orange Lutheran and Valley Christian, two of the top-six teams in the country, as well as Los Gatos. Southlake Carroll started the regular season with a 10-7 win over Valley Christian before losing the next four. Two of the four losses -- the second game against Valley Christian and the final game against Los Gatos -- were decided by one run.

Tournaments are allowed in the regular season, according to the UIL’s rules. Here is a breakdown:
- 0 tournaments and 26 games
- 1 tournament and 23 games
- 2 tournaments and 20 games
- 3 tournaments and 17 games
The Panthers are loaded with talent. They looked the part in week one. The No. 3 ranked team in the country went 4-0 and outscored opponents 44-1, including a 20-1 win over Midlothian and a 11-0 shutout against Trinity. Senior pitcher Aidan Caputi also threw a perfect game in a five-inning, run-ruled 12-0 win over Copperas Cove.
On a team with possible No. 1 pick Bobby Witt Jr. and Auburn Baseball pledge Mason Greer -- both sons of former professional baseball players -- it was Chandler Freeman, a Dallas Baptist signee, who had the best week. He hit 4-10 and totaled 10 RBIs, thanks in large part to a Grand Slam against Midlothian. He also struck out nine over four innings of no-run ball against Amarillo Randall, a game Colleyville Heritage won 1-0 in extra innings.
Mansfield Legacy's Nate Rombach: Last year's District 6-5A MVP went 2-3 and hit a grand slam in a 11-5 win over Ennis. He finished with five RBIs. The senior catcher signed with Texas Tech earlier this year.
Frisco Reedy's Josh Foskey: The future Stephen F. Austin quarterback, who led Reedy on a deep playoff run, went 2-4 with four RBIs in a 20-9 win over Northwest Eaton, last year's 5A champs.
Coppell's Porter Hardcastle: The senior allowed five hits and struck out six on his way to a complete game shutout of McKinney Boyd.
Mansfield's Kade Fletcher: The senior may have only had one hit, but that, plus a walk and a sacrifice fly, was enough for him to finish with five RBIs in a 13-0 win over Trinity.
Northwest Eaton's Colby Fritchen: The senior hit two doubles and a home run to finish with five RBIs in a 12-4 win over Justin Northwest.
