INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Last Friday night, plenty of schools made their case for consideration in the season-long battle for the 2023 WISH-TV The Zone Banner presented by Crew Carwash and Bailey & Wood Financial Group.

Student sections from around Central Indiana showed out, both at home and on the road, to prove why they deserve to be on the watchlist for The Banner.

WISH-TV Sports Director Anthony Calhoun released his Top 8 student sections following week 2.

These schools stood out and are in contention to win the undisputed top spirit award to display in their school gymnasium.

The list includes three members of last week’s Top 8, proving that your student section can’t just impress in the comfort of home, but true contenders for The Zone Banner must show out on the road as well.

Just five of the eight teams won their week 2 matchup. So your team doesn’t even have to win in order to make the list, the best schools are those who cheer their squads on regardless of team performance.

Congratulations to the following schools, listed alphabetically:

AC’s Top 8 Student Sections

Brownsburg (2-0): 45-31 home win over Cathedral.

Cathedral (1-1): 45-31 road loss to Brownsburg.

Guerin Catholic (2-0): 27-3 home win over Lafayette Central Catholic.

Hamilton Southeastern (2-0): 35-7 road win over North Central.

Martinsville (1-1): 35-6 road loss to Bloomington South.

New Palestine (0-2): 43-42 road loss to Decatur Central.

Noblesville (2-0): 42-0 home win over New Palestine.

Plainfield (2-0): 15-14 home win over Harrison.

Coming Up

Next Sunday, AC will release the week 3 version of his Top 8 “Best Student Section.”
