Wyandotte finished in 9th place, but only the top five moved on in the Battle of the Fans contest.
Roosevelt High School's student section is filled with school pride, but those who make up the SixthMan will have to try again next year to be rewarded for their antics. Wyandotte entered a video of their student section into the Michigan High School Athletic Association's second annual Battle of the Fans contest, but fell short in making the cut.

The Roosevelt basketball student section is in the running for a statewide Battle of the Fans contest.
They are. Sixthman. If you've been to a Roosevelt High School basketball game, there's little doubt you know who the SixthMan are. With their crazy costumes, themed chants and overall excitement, the few dozen guys sit together to create a student section like none other. Sometimes they sing songs to pump up the team and the crowd, while other times they put on skits. Regardless, though, they leave people laughing and feeling good. "They stand out," Roosevelt teacher Ron Adams said. "There's no doubt about it. The group of young men that represent our school as a sixth man do an outstanding job as far as the themes they set up, the interaction with the crowd, the excitement that they generate. You can just feel the energy. And I think it …

The Michigan High School Athletic Association is hosting a video contest and giving away tickets.
Hey, student-athletes: It’s time to put down the bats and 9-irons and pick up the video camera. The Michigan High School Athletic Association wants to know, “Why do you play high school sports?” Do you love the camaraderie? Or maybe it’s the edge of a tight match?
