Well, the Student Sections got me very overwhelmed this past weekend.

In our coverage debut of the Student Sections in Northern California and Nevada, we got off to a good start in getting discovered, but we aren’t entirely known in Southern California. While I know of the Rancho Bernardo Stable, they weren’t fully aware of us. Well, they are now.

Along with the Rancho Bernardo Stable of San Diego taking the SoCal Student Section of the Week title, the Placer Goldmine took the NorCal Student Section of the Week title and the Liberty Patriot Pit of Henderson took the Nevada Student Section of the Week.

This is only the beginning as more Student Sections will be discovered by us and vice versa.

It seemed like we returned back to normal when it came to the baby powder, the streamers, chants paint, chants and loud noises! Man, I missed the Student Sections.

We have a little over 10 more weeks of Student Section of the Week voting, so if you’re Student Section didn’t make the Final 4, not to worry, you have plenty of time to make the cut!

Now, these three Student Sections didn’t just get picked, we had three other nominees in every region. Let’s recognize those nominees;

As always, the San Clemente Loud Crowd rocked it at home and as always, they enjoyed a Tritons 38-0 victory over Oceanside. Photo Credit/Instagram @schs.loud.crowd

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA: San Clemente Loud Crowd, Temescal Canyon Blue Hole of Lake Elsinore, Royal Kingdom of Simi Valley.

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA: Rocklin Storm, Granite Bay Grizzly Den, Roseville Tiger Cage.

NEVADA: Centennial Dawgpound of Las Vegas, Desert Oasis Pit Crew of Las Vegas, Shadow Ridge of Las Vegas.

Now the Liberty Patriot Pit, Placer Goldmine and the Rancho Bernardo Stable can’t win another weekly title, but they still have to make a strong showing to end at number one in their region and battle for the West Coast Student Section Title!

Anyway, we asked our three Student Section of the Week winners what it took to take the Weekly title in their region!

You guys are the Nevada Student Section of the Week, beating out the Centennial Dawgpound, Desert Oasis Pit Crew and Shadow Ridge. What did it take to stand out as one of the best in Southern California?

Patriot Pit: It takes having an extremely supportive student body that is willing to show school spirit and excitement to be the best student section in Nevada. The student participation in our games is what makes our student body feel a sense of unity. We want Liberty to be the place that represents an extremely inclusive and positive environment for everyone.

Patriot Pit: One of the most memorable games that Liberty has had was the 2019 Homecoming Game.

The game was overall extremely lively and everyone in the stands showed so much spirit. 

Favorite theme?

Patriot Pit: A favorite theme of ours was a white out themed game where students are decked out in all white clothing and are excited to do our traditional flour toss in the bleachers. 

This spirit day is not only very simple so every student is able to be involved and feel included, but it is also very fun to see how creative every student can get with their outfits.
