As the weeks go on, our 9Preps FAN-tastic series keeps getting more and more competitive. We wouldn't want it any other way.
In our third edition of the digital series where we aim to find the best fan videos from high school sports around Colorado, we had a ton of incredible candidates.
After much deliberation, we have a winner.
Chaparral High School didn't just beat No. 1 Rock Canyon in boys' basketball Friday night. The school also beat out several strong nominees on its way to becoming this week's 9Preps FAN-tastic champion.
The Wolverines didn't just do it with one spectacular video. They brought the energy and creativity all night.
They hype started well before tip-off.
Then, the game started.
First, it was the "Viking clap". And, wow, did it look awesome with the entire sellout crowd doing it perfectly in unison.
But that was just the start. The fans were in sync all night.
It was such an amazing atmosphere, that even ESPN was at the game.
Oh, and did we mention they beat the No. 1 ranked team in the state? That led to a pretty epic court storm.
All together, while several schools impressed with big crowds this week, none could top Chaparral.
Although, there was one other game--and two worthy schools--that deserve an honorable mention.
Earlier in the week on Tuesday, the atmosphere was electric up in Fort Collins between the Lambkins and Fossil Ridge.
Not to mention, that game ended with a pretty sweet court storm as well, as Fort Collins stunned the Sabercats in the final minute.
Congrats to all of our nominees, and especially our winner at Chaparral High School!
