      The Frankenmuth High School student cheering section has been selected as this years Michigan High School Athletic Association Battle of the Fans VI winner as the top student cheering section among member schools. This was the sixth year for the contest, which was organized by MHSAA staff and its 16-member Student Advisory Council. Frankenmuth, which won the inaugural Battle of the Fans in 2012, is the contests first two-time champion. said Andy Frushour, MHSAA director of brand management and advisor to the Student Advisory Council We were excited to see during our trip to Frankenmuth the same kind of crazy, fun atmosphere that we remembered from our first Battle of the Fans visit in 2012. Student sections from Boyne City, Charlotte, Frankenmuth, Petoskey and Traverse City West were selected as finalists from a pool of applicants.
   


MHSAA staff and SAC members visited all five for home basketball games during the last six weeks and produced videos of each section for the MHSAAs YouTube channel. A public vote was conducted on the MHSAAs Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages beginning Monday and ending Thursday, and those results influenced the Advisory Council vote as members selected the champion.

The Student Advisory Council also based its vote on the following criteria: positive sportsmanship, student body participation, school spirit, originality of cheers, organization of the group, section leadership and overall fun.

Frankenmuth, on Feb. 3, was the final stop on the MHSAA finalists tour.

The Student Advisory Council is made up of eight seniors and eight juniors, who each serve two-year terms. The Council acts as the voice of Michigan's student-athletes; it serves as a student sounding board for the MHSAA's Representative Council, assists in planning Sportsmanship Summits, Captains Clinics and other student leadership events; participates in a yearly focus group about the state of high school sports for Michigan State University's Institute for the Study of Youth Sports and assists with medal ceremonies at MHSAA championship events.
