Last weekend’s showdown in San Antonio pitted all 22 World Class corps against each other for the first time this season and shed some light on what the last few weeks of the season may look like.
True to form, the top four corps traded spots once again as The Cadets used the season’s highest score (88.700) to launch themselves back into the top spot. The gap between spots first and fourth is now just a mere 1.3 points.
For the second week in a row, spots five through eight remain unchanged. Phantom Regiment used a strong week to close the gap between them and The Cavaliers, while Blue Knights (still solidly in sixth) slipped a bit further behind fifth place SCV.
As mentioned in previous weeks, the real action among World Class corps occurred between ninth and fifteenth. Both Madison and Crossmen were able to jump three spots this week, while the Troopers lost a little momentum and slipped four spots. Even with all of this movement, only four points separate ninth and fifteenth. The race for twelfth is going to be exciting.
This last week was a quiet week for Open Class as many of the corps are off as they gear up for the final few weeks of the season. As mentioned last week, it is difficult to gain consistency with these rankings since many corps have already concluded their seasons (denoted below by *). Genesis, 7th Regiment, and Spartans were the most active corps this week, and as a result were able to jump two, four, and two spots respectively.
