Come on Plainfield.
Cast your vote.
Don’t go down
On a sour note!
Plainfield North and East High Schools need your vote in Comcast’s Battle of the Fans Madness tournament.
With just two days left in the first week of voting, is poised to advance to the second round of the tournament thanks to its fourth-place standing, but may be slipping off the screen without a weekend rally.
The two schools made the roster of 16 Chicago area schools tapped to compete in this year’s first-ever Battle of the Fans Madness Tournament after showing contest-worthy “ excitement and enthusiasm” during their recent appearance on the CN100 Game of the Week during the 2010-11 basketball season.
This is not the same Madness competition as the 101.9-FM/The Mix's annual Suburban Madness Battle of the Burbs contest we’ve been following, where Plainfield made it through round one after beating Oak Forest in online voting Thursday.
This is a school spirit match staged by the Comcast CN100, the cable station that broadcasts high school sports every Monday, Tuesday and Saturday. Beginning last Monday, the 16 student sections began vying to see which best roots for its school in front of CN100 cameras at their high school basketball games.
It only takes a few clicks to support your student section by voting at www.cn100.tv/battle_of_the_fans.aspx. Based on viewer voting results - this means you - the field will be cut in half after this week’s round, which ends on Sunday. Only the top eight vote-getters this week advance to the second round next week.
Then, on April 18, look for Comcast to crown its Battle of the Fans Madness champion. The best student section wins a special Battle of the Fans banner to display as a trophy for its school spirit.
