Johnson finished 4.70 points ahead of second place Bellevue West, Nebraska (85.50). Timber Creek finished in third place at 82.60, followed by Clovis, N.M. (fourth place, 79.85) and Sherman (fifth place, 79.70). There were 23 bands in the first-year BOA competition.

CTJ was named Class AAAA champion following preliminaries competition with a score of 90.05. Other class champions were Bellevue West (AAA), Plainview CTJ Performs in BOA Midland Regional(AA), and Pecos (A).

Additionally, CTJ swept the music, visual and general effect captions in finals and preliminaries, as it did in its season opening win at BOA Austin in September.

On a day that was warm and windy, bands from Texas, New Mexico and Nebraska found much friendship and camaraderie at the event. Following finals retreat, CTJ and the Del Rio High School Band — which finished in seventh place with its second BOA finals appearance of 2017 — got together for a group picture.

It was the perfect end to a great day — and a great day to be a Jaguar.
