Nine student cheering sections from Michigan High School Athletic Association member schools have been selected from the first phase of this year's "Battle of the Fans IX (9)" contest to take part in the "Challenge Round" as they vie for this year's championship recognizing the top section in the state.
This year's nine semifinalists are Saginaw Heritage, Traverse City West and Zeeland East from Class A; Buchanan, Caro and Frankenmuth from Class B; and Hart, Petersburg-Summerfield and Reese from Class C/D.
Battle of the Fans IX (9), organized by MHSAA staff and its 16-member Student Advisory Council, kicked off by inviting schools to submit short videos, via YouTube, of their cheering sections in action by Jan. 11. The Advisory Council has selected nine semifinalists to accomplish a list of tasks showing off their sections over the next 12 days - and the Council will then select three finalists for MHSAA visits.
This year's winner will be announced Feb. 21 and recognized March 27 during the MHSAA Boys Basketball Semifinals at Michigan State University's Breslin Center.
