IHSA to Hold 3rd Annual Student Section Showdown

The IHSA Board of Directors met at the IHSA office in Bloomington for their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, where the Board announced that the Student Section Showdown will return for the 3rd year in a row.


The inaugural contest took place in 2014-15, with Central A&M High School and Prospect High School being named the champions in Class 1A/2A and Class 3A/4A, respectively. Last year’s winners were Breese Central (Class 1A/2A) and Ottawa Township (Class 3A/4A).


The Student Section Showdown came from the IHSA Student Advisory Committee (SAC). This contest creates competition for student sections from around the state to show off their school spirit.


The deadline to enter is February 7th, 2017 where schools are asked to submit a video, up to 3 minutes, showing off their school spirit with their student section during a game.


The submissions will be judged by the SAC and representatives from the finalists will be invited to the IHSA Boys Basketball State Finals, where the winners will be revealed.
