Re: Is SMC the hardest activity to advance to "State" in?
Statistically no. Although it is an every other year event for state, more groups advance to State because the nature of the activity in each division. Letís say 24 bands advance to state in a division every two years. That means 12 bands per every year. Compare this to the four teams that advance to State each year from the same division.
Three times as many bands advance to State compared to any single sports event.
On the other hand, those sports will name 4 times the number of State Champions to our marching bands since we only advance every two years and they name two champions per year.
