In the finals, Hebron took first place, as well as individual awards for Outstanding Music Performance, Outstanding Visual Performance and Outstanding General Effect. FMHS took seventh and Marcus finished in 13th place.
The Argyle High School Marching Band was named the Class 2A champion and also swept the individual awards: Outstanding Music Performance, Outstanding Visual Performance and Outstanding General Effect.
