Vocal Rush, from the Oakland School of the Arts, also won the 2017 ICHSA Finals.  For that win, they get a "bye" to the Finals of Varsity Vocals' first annual AcaOpen.

They won this 5-song EP by winning the high school competition at NACC 2016, which they absolutely deserved. It's an amazing prize which would normally cost thousands of dollars, and the students get to experience a professional recording and come away with a tangible memory of their time in their a cappella group.
Be on the lookout for their new EP!
