LaPorte wins 16 Spirit Award for week 8
Congrats to the LaPorte Slicers, winners of the 16 Spirit Award for week 8.
I presented LaPorte with a plaque and check for $100 from Monteith's Best One for showing the most school spirit on last week's edition of Friday Night Football. LaPorte beat Michigan City to improve to 8-0 and win the Duneland Athletic Conference Championship.
"With Friday night's and everybody in the stands cheering us on, it's a great atmosphere and I love it," says LaPorte senior guard Mason Anderson.
"Well if you come to Kiwanis Field on Friday night, you're going to see a full house and it's really led by the student section," adds Slicers football coach David Sharpe. "They just do awesome chants throughout the game. It's crazy, it's loud and we love it and our kids really feed off it. It's a great place to play, great place to play."
Now they are looking to beat Portage on Friday to finish the regular season undefeated for the first time since 1946.
