We visited, we watched, we enjoyed and now we've returned from our five trips to this season's MHSAA Battle of the Fans III finalists. 

And now it's your turn to vote for your favorite in this season's search for Michigan's top high school cheering section. 

Vote today through Thursday on your favorite of these five (enrollments in parentheses) – Beaverton (427), Bridgman (320), Buchanan (465), Frankfort (152) and Traverse City West (1,653) – by liking, sharing and re-tweeting on the MHSAA’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram sites.

But before you do, take a few minutes to watch all five videos and read all five stories behind the section by clicking the links below. 

The contest is sponsored by the MHSAA Student Advisory Council, which will have the final vote on the champion. SAC members will use all resources available to make their decision(s) – including giving significant weight to the public social media vote. Votes will be valued proportionate to the size of the school receiving them (for example, one vote for Class D Frankfort will mean more than one vote for much larger Class A Traverse City West). 

The champion will be announced Friday on Second Half. Video of all five finalists will be compiled and shown on the main scoreboard during the Girls and Boys Basketball Finals in March at Michigan State's Breslin Student Events Center. The winner will be invited to Breslin for the Class C Boys Basketball Semifinals and presented a championship banner at center court. 

And now, the finalists, in alphabetical order:

I am a transplant from Jackson Co. And never have I felt so accepted in all my life here in Beaverton. There is no greater place in the state for community and sports. GO BEAVERS!

I moved to Beaverton 2 1/2 years ago. Never have I seen a community pull together like this one. Whether it's coming together to fight cancer or pulling for our sports teams, Beaverton is a community who watches out for everyone. GO BEAVERS!!
