Greenwich’s Cardinal Crazies have taken the first step to winning the 8th annual Ruden Report Fan Showdown, presented by Splash Car Wash.
The defending champion Cardinal Crazies won the voting competition and the five points awarded for first place. Trumbull is in second place with four points. Fairfield Warde finished third and has three points, Fairfield Ludlowe came in fourth and has two points and Westhill finished fifth and has one point.
The contest now moves to the video portion of the competition to determine the winner, which will receive $500 for its athletic department.
Each school has submitted a video showing its fans in action.
We will start displaying the videos today. A panel of my social media staff will judge the videos. They will give a 3 to the best one, 2 for the second-best one and 1 for the third-best. The school that earns the most overall video points, as with the voting, will get 5 points. Second place is worth 4 points, third place is worth 3 points, fourth place is worth 2 points and fifth place gets 1 point. We will add up the points from the vote and the videos to determine the winner. If two schools tie, we will give them the option to agree on holding another vote to break it or to split the $500.
So check back as we post the videos and determine a champion for the eighth annual Ruden Report Fan Showdown.
