The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) has announced
the finalists for its second annual Student Section Showdown, with the
winners to be announced at America’s Original March Madness, the
upcoming IHSA Boys Basketball State Finals at the Peoria Civic Center in
Peoria. Olympia High School has been named as one of the finalists for
the second year in a row.
The IHSA Student Section Showdown was an idea born from the
IHSA Student Advisory Committee (SAC) that pits student sections from
the around the state against one another to see who has the best spirit
and sportsmanship (see rules). Schools had until February 2, 2016 to
submit a video (up to three minutes) that showcased their student
section in action during a game, as well as the impact the student
section has on sportsmanship and school spirit.
