Love Phantom '87. Unfortunately, finals was not their best run.

Yeah.  They could have edged past BD and Cavies for third, but something just wasn't clicking that night.  Still one of my favorite shows, though.

I just checked the scores from 1987. Regiment actually placed 3rd on Friday; so it was BD and Cavies that edged past them on Saturday.

Looking back in retrospective now you mentioned this... yeah, I can definitely see the Cavies pulling that off. That show's a real chestnut for me as well. Been ever fond of Claude Smith since playing under him as a kid... and the Holsinger closer, visually dynamic and arresting for its time. A very, very different show from Phantom's. The BD show, other than the opener... never really grabbed me.
