ADLA Championship Results...

Post by PercussionAndAllThatJazz » Sun May 09, 2004 6:17 pm

Heya, three questions..

Which school/division/place are you from/did you get?

How did you personally do? Soloists included.

Do you agree with the scores/placement?

Who were your favorites?

We're Huntington Beach HS, Scholastic A, 3rd and high pit and cymbals.

I got 2nd place for solo...My performance was right on. I was SO stoked with my section. I'm proud of the boys.

I was frustrated because we had never seen these judges before so they didnt understand our show, but since our line is gigantic, the visual is really dense and i guess it's hard to decipher. Plus, we had some major tears. But I was disappointed nonetheless. But hey, props to Rio Mesa. :)

Personals of mine...
San Marcos
Villa Park

san marcos MS???? theyre show is tight but some ppl need new attitudes.... this grl from there came by us when we were loading our stuff back into the truck and said that we were the poor school, they were the disco school...

well we got high cymbals and the caption judge came to my school to conduct our band one day... he probably gave us that as a joke, what westminster hs captain Glen said hah.

6th place, 40.3. As long as we did our best.
My faves were Townsend, i like their show. The same 3 were favor to win.

I saw the Lexington MS coach and i said Hi, Good luck and he just stared me down :shock: lol i havent seen their show but theyre better than us.

Our school, Hesperia High School, won the ADLA Scholastic B champs so I thought it went well. (I'm happy)

I personally did pretty good except that I was supposed to smile the whole time at a judge I have never seen before and he made it hard how he was just staring me down and smiling back.

I didn't agree with a few things though.
1) We added so much extra cool stuff since our last show and our score only went up .3
2) The schools that placed really low got section awards. (It's because their book was easier. but oh well, that's life)

The one that intimidated us was La Quinta. (I loved their show but they scared us, we thought they'd beat our @$$)
Another show I liked was La Sierra, ( their pit totally deserved the section award) we would love to do as many visuals but we play the whole time and have almost no rests.

Hey there, congratulations on a great performance today....I've enjoyed your show every time I've seen it...I'm so sorry you were disappointed in your result. I think it's always a challenge to have fresh eyes and I honestly couldn't have chosen first place (which is why I'm not a judge, LOL).

Anyway, I'm a mom from Rio Mesa and appreciate your 'props' to us -- our kids have worked their butts off since January for this and it's a first for our school -- a real boost to the program!

I just wanted to jump on here and say personally how impressed I was with you guys (HBHS), Riverside Poly and Sultana -- every time I see your shows I'm knocked out. And please tell whoever did your costume design that it's truly award-winning design.

No guys were 3rd of 21~an awesome accomplishment!

drummermom, who had a GREAT Mother's Day, thanks to all of you!

I'm from Bonita High. We were in standstill, I'm not sure what the color was, but we were in the middle group. We got 3rd and high basses. Personally, I did okay, I could have done better, but then I'm always a perfectionist. I didn't screw up so that was good. Even though the pit(I'm in the pit) didn't do great, and a couple of them caused a huge tear in the beginning of the show, I'm still extremely proud of them because of all of the crap we've had to deal with this past season. The drummers were great too and their head banging was awesome. Anyway, I do agree with the placement and scores. But I wasn't sure on the penalty we got because it was a bigger penalty for championships than last week's competition and we didn't change anything and last week the girl playing the trianlge dropped it and she didn't drop in the championship show, I don't know though. I personally didn't watch any of the shows accept for the last standstill group. I was also gawking at all the nice stuff that all of the groups had so I wasn't really paying attention. I wanted to go back on Sunday but I didn't have a ride :( , oh well.
yay for the pit captain!

**watch your toes**

Which school/division/place are you from/did you get?

I'm from Villa Park High School and we were in Open Red. We got 5th place, which I'm pretty happy about. For the solo I placed first, which was cool, but I really wanted to play again because I don't think I played my best at AB Miller.

How did you personally do? Soloists included. In our show, I did great. I came a little close to catching my stick on the rim during the backsticking part of the solo, and the split went well, and I didn't drop my stick on either of the two sticky flippy things. I last played the solo at AB Miller; I really wanted to play one more time just because, as I said above, I think I could have played better, but I guess 'better' is always just beyond the horizon.

Do you agree with the scores/placement?
I agree totally with our placement. For most of the competitions, we were in lower open divisions and getting 2nd or 3rd place, so it was expected to get a lower placement yesterday when we moved into the highest Open division. Our score I am happy about; we got better and that is what matters. I thought El Modena's show was underappreciated, but the story line is very complex and I only get it because El Modena and Villa Park have the same instructor and he explained it to me when he was first designing it. I didn't agree with the college placement; I really enjoyed UNLV's show and was a little bummed that they didn't take the title, but then again it's all about having a great show and playing great music, which is what went down.

Who were your favorites?

EL MODENA!!! Huntington Beach I wanted to see but I didn't get the chance, but one of my friends got a DVD of all the lines, so I'll just see it on her DVD. It was way cool seeing Lydia Noh again; I haven't seen her since about September or October so that was cool even though I only really got to say high. So congrats to Lydia (who I never saw play but Mr. Slack told me she was doing well!), congrats to Res (though the last time I saw you play was at the Villa Park Competition), congrats to Greg (my hero), congrats to Jasmine Baker (whose solo was FANTASTIC at AB Miller!!), and all the soloists who were all really good; I learned a lot!! UNLV had a great show, I love Shostakovich and they totally deserved high pit and bass!

Downey did very well at championships. We got a score of 88.9 after the 1.9 penalty. The speakers would not work but we had to get them working because our narrator needed talk to have the show make sense. So, we went over the time limit to set up. So, technically without that penalty we would have been in fourth place over El Modena. Oh well, I'm still proud of everyone! DOWNEY ROCKS! :D

Captions: High Cymbals

I believe that we did really great. I believe that we deserved that score that we received. I don't know if it should've been us winning or santa barbara but that's because i have never seen their show. Anyways, I wanna congratulate them on a great season.

oh and to hawthorne w/ your "viper" move. . .nice. . .i'm not gonna diss you guys or anything. awesome job this year. there were times that i couldn't see the cymbals, so i was wondering if you guys had any visuals that you guys made up? we had a couple. but anyways. . .i believe your line earned the WORLD div. championships. good job.
do you guys have a girl on the cymbal line?
