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...
May not have won the game tonight, but we still raised over $1,400 for the American Cancer Society! And we SMASHED cancer! 💕💙⚔️#AndoverProud #SPEAREM #WeAre #VKranks @funschelle18 @CatchItKansas @HK_Barber pic.twitter.com/bBTwbwCs6S— AHS Blue Crew 18/19 (@AHSBlueCrew2019) October 13, 2018
The number in the embed tweet is a bit off--the Trojans actually raised over $1,700 for the American Cancer Society. AND they smashed pumpkins. AND they did a shirt swap from blue to pink.
What if we told you these pictures were taken in the same night??— AHS Blue Crew 18/19 (@AHSBlueCrew2019) October 13, 2018
The Blue Crew is out in full force tonight against crosstown rival Andover Central. Peep the 2 different banners 👀⚔️ #FIGHTCANCER #vkranks @HK_Barber @funschelle18 @CatchItKansas pic.twitter.com/UcaS6r5IeG
That's how you get the top spot back to back weeks.
I said their time was coming. If not for what Andover did on Friday night, they would take home the top spot. I mean The Den broke Thor's hammer, not just anyone can do that!
(3) Andover Central
s/o to @KWCHMatt with @CatchItKansas for capturing our LOUD & PROUD student section!!! 👀🙌🏼🤫‼️⚠️ The Jungle was in full force for our win against Andover last Friday! #ACallday #VKranks @HK_Barber @funschelle18 pic.twitter.com/iDBci2a5hT— ACHS STUDENT SECTION (@ACHS_Jungle) October 15, 2018
The Jags were live for the Backyard Brawl--and they got to celebrate a win over rival Andover. Not a bad Friday night.
A little Ri-Ri (Rihanna) never hurt anyone! UMBRELLA-ELLA-ELLA-A-A-A ☔️☂️☔️☂️ pic.twitter.com/VVU0gu121h— Lion Kingdom (@GHSDen) October 13, 2018
Goddard stays at the forefront of creativity in student sections. This is the first I've seen a school use rain as a theme! Even if it wasn't actually raining...
A three hour road trip is a daunting task. Kapaun made it look like they were playing in West Wichita. That is dedication.
(6) Garden City
You always have to go big for the Hatchet game. The Buffs did just that, making Dodge feel like a home stadium for them.
(7) Maize South
The Mavs student section helped make something truly special happen, raising $900 for a classmate fighting cancer.
PINK OUT🎀💗 65-26!!!! pic.twitter.com/Nzp6lQnPbx— NWHS SENIORS (@nw_2019) October 13, 2018
Pink out + a big win over Heights makes for a wild student section. That's how the Grizzlies make their return to the top ten.
Great work to all students who made it out to cheer on the football team in sub-50 degree temperatures when you absolutely did not have to. That is the reason Campus is so great! 🤯 pic.twitter.com/207uCLsTaB— Screamin' Stampede (@CHScoltpride) October 13, 2018
Superhero night at Derby stretched to the opposing stands, where Campus came out in full force for rivalry week. Shouts to Mermaid Man for making the trip.
The Crusaders make it back to back weeks in the top ten with a great road showing at Winfield. This week's game with Mulvane will be crazy.
HM: Trinity, Great Bend, Newton, East, Maize
