For the fourth year, the Catch It Kansas student sections rankings are back!
In 2018, area student sections came out strong to start the year, causing a big shake up from our preseason rankings. Before we get to those, as always, here's a recap of past champions
Fall 2015: Garden City High School
Winter 2015-16: Berean Academy
Fall 2016: Goddard High School
Winter 2016-17: Andover High School
Fall 2017: Garden City High School
Winter: 2017-18: McPherson High School
Let's get to the rankings. Starting us out at the top...
Thought it would be fitting to get a little bit of home-made PacMan going to celebrate the 80s theme. Creativity points 11/10. We're coming for that #1 spot 😈😈@CatchItKansas (@HK_Barber bring back the VK rankings!) pic.twitter.com/aOy0RPV17S— KMC Student Leaders (@KMCTHEMES) September 16, 2018
PAC-MAN! Last week we saw wack-a-mole. Now Kapaun is upping the creativity factor with a game of Pac-Man in the stands to bring in 80s night. These are next level student sections this year, and we're only through three games. I'm just excited of what's to come
Back in Blue thanks to Cole's FG, LIONS UP 10-0 pic.twitter.com/61nVPMXrxp— Lion Kingdom (@GHSDen) September 15, 2018
Goddard brought it again this week. I don't have enough space to embed all of the tweets, so an explainer. The Den brought a cube with different color/patterened sides, threw it in the air, and swapped between blue and white shirts after each score. Part of me wishes the game would have been a shootout to really test them.
Derby wins the road team student section of the week award. If you see the pictures I swear you'd never know the game was being played in Newton.

GBHS takes the Rage Cage mobile to Wichita NorthWest!! Way to come out and fight the whole game, youre still winners in our eyes❤️🖤❤️ALPHA DELTA VICTORY BABY @CatchItKansas @GBHS_PepClub pic.twitter.com/a03OSVYq1s— Kayla🍒 (@rnckaylaaa) September 15, 2018
The Rage Cage went mobile for their second long road trip of the year and didn't disappoint! The Panthers have really set the bar for student sections on the road this year.

s/o to the football team last friday & to the student section for staying till the very end of overtime as we took on Goddard! The Jungle always shows up👀👀🙌🏼💥 pic.twitter.com/ZsFtmK31cM— ACHS STUDENT SECTION (@ACHS_Jungle) September 17, 2018
The Jungle hit the road to Goddard and lit up the sky with neon night. And it was a long night for them, staying for an overtime game.
Thanks for everyone that came to support! Great attendance to our first home game! Let’s keep it up people! pic.twitter.com/GO7oLuivs7— Tiger Nation (@EHSZoo) September 14, 2018
You can tell The Zoo has been itching for that first home game. What a turnout on a Thursday night, and they were LOUD.
(7) Salina Central
The second field rush of the season for the Mustangs! It's always a party when you knock off a rival, especially ending a long losing streak.
We brought out AVCTL MVP @ShantiNHenry to teach us a little bit about defense. Our own D is putting on a show tonight on the road vs Eisenhower👀 We are the Kings of Thursday football! #SpearEm #WeAre #TNL @HK_Barber @CatchItKansas @VypeKS ⚔️🏈⚪️ pic.twitter.com/Hv4uLObDTF— AHS Blue Crew 18/19 (@AHSBlueCrew2019) September 14, 2018
This is good. Jersey Thursday, and leading the student section none other than AVCTL girls baketball MVP Shanti Henry. Fitting, really.
The Red Rage was HYPE on Friday night. Couldn't tell if they were actually playing a road game half of the night.
(10) Valley Center
Like Eisenhower, you can tell how much the Hornet students were ready for the home opener. They partied their way to a 2-1 start on the year.
