The judges came to town Tuesday night, and the Father Gabriel Richard student section put on quite a show.
The MHSAA stopped by Gabriel Richard for the Irish’s game against Madison Heights Bishop Foley, to judge the student section in its "Battle of the Fans" contest. Gabriel Richard is one of five finalists.
On beach night, the students dressed in Hawaiian shirts and leis and pulled out all the stops. That included, dancing, singing, chanting, surfing and a ride on the “fan coaster.”
There’s even Moses, parting the student section to climb to the top of the bleachers and retrieve the 10 Commandments.
The MHSAA will host a poll on its Facebook page Feb. 19-21, where fans can vote among the five finalists.
The winner will be announced Feb. 22.
