Phantom was also solid but I would have put them in 6th behind Boston instead of the tie.

Wasn't 2002 the year that Phantom came down with food poisoning just before their finals performance?

such a fun year. first show early June in Landsdale.....Cadets with a big lead on BD who seemed a hot mess. Crossmen starting strong...heat of the Day was genius...Spirit nd the Holsinger was showing

Absolutely loved the Glassmen Flugelhorn soloist (it was the same performer from the 2001 show).   

I saw Magic Wed-Saturday.....Wednesday was their best run. I am telling you at D2/3 finals they deserved every bit of that 99 on the 2/3 sheets of the day

I agree with your thoughts here. Glassmen were actually running top 5 for a good portion of the season. They took 5th at the DCI Southwestern Regional in San Antonio and were neck and neck with Phantom until late season. Something happened after that. Perhaps the show plateaued...not sure. They started the season HOT. And that percussion section was excellent once again.

I will comment more on 2002, but for starters I remember being blown away by Magic of Orlando but forgot they competed division II that year, yet still made Finals and took 11th place. I guess for some reason I thought they were Div I (aka World Class). Someone remind me of what the deal was here. Also, was this the only year Seattle Cascades made top 12? 

Loved Magic's show - remember the tenor player going down at the 1:20 mark (30 yard line) and the audience reaction to his recovery (1:40 mark).

I completely agree.  That Wednesday run was amazing.  I remember saying this exact thing that night.  And it was needed because that whole night was very strong!

I was not there on Wednesday but I saw some of these groups during the season. Stellar year for Div II/III.

2002 Phantom was JD Shaw's first year as arranger.

Their drill was not that great, but their guard was quite good.  I think Jennifer Leseth (Jennifo?) was still guard caption head in 2002 but I may be wrong.

That's a guard you don't want to mess with.

I was pretty indifferent to JD Shaw's first arrangements for Regiment. But he made up for them every year thereafter. I'd always loved the slow movement from Shosty's Piano Concerto No. 2, and it made for a great ballad.

She was there in 2003 also.
