But first... a look back on Season 87 -
After making their return in Season 86, the 4 PPA ensembles achieved even greater feats in Season 87.
SoundSpuds DBC (Boise, ID) - D2 Finalist (10th Place Overall) - Despite finishing 10th overall with "Doomsday", the corps came home in 2nd Place in Visual Performance, Color Guard, and Percussion. The Season 87 Famous Idaho Potato Invitational was even a bigger success than Season 86, making extremely large profits for the corps.
Keystone HS MB (Allentown, PA) - D2 Finalist (10th Place Overall) - Our marching band also had some good caption results, coming home 2nd in Winds with their production of "Alexander Hamilton".
Santa Claus Vanguard WG (North Pole) - With their production of "Frozen", SCV brought home D2 Semifinalist status (15th Place Overall). The group also hosted the inaugural Polar Express Invitational in Ottawa.
Broken Pulse Mystique (Dayton, OH) - D2 Semifinalist (15th Place Overall). Despite only jumping one spot with "Madness", BPM jumped 8(!) points from S86 to S87.
