BOA - Grand Nationals

Bands Of America Marching Championships

The Trojan Pride has a rich history of competing in BOA Marching Events. The Trojan Pride has been a consistent Regional and Super-Regional finalist since 2002, as well as a Grand National Semi-Finalist. This year the band will return to Grand Nationals in Indianapolis as well as the Super-Regional Marching Contest in St. Louis.

We are proud to annouce that the Trojan Pride will be returning to Grand Nationals. 2013 marked the first time that the Trojan Pride ever competed at Grand Nationals in the school's history. The Trojan Pride has made two total appearances, making semi-finals in one of those trips. The Trojan Pride looks to improve their record and aspires to one day be a Grand National Finalist Band. A general itinerary for this trip is posted below. The performance time in preliminary competition for the Trojan Pride is slotted for Friday afternoon at 12:45 PM.
