The Illinois High School Association announced the 2020 Student Section Showdown Champions. For the second consecutive year, William Fremd High School was named the Class 3A/4A champions.  Fremd’s repeat is the first in the event’s six-year history. 

The event consists of schools submitting videos of their student sections during various events.  The videos are then judged by the IHSA Student Advisory Committee.  The videos are judged on a variety of categories including sportsmanship, spirit, student participation and originality. 

The IHSA stated that the winner of the event was scheduled to be announced during the 2020 boys basketball championship game earlier this year.  However, due to COVID-19, the event was cancelled.

The Student Section Showdown Championship is sponsored by Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donation, Eversight, and LifeGoesOn.com.
