Print Article

SANDPOINT — Get ready for an entertaining, fun and at times loud night, as Sandpoint High School is looking to fill Les Rogers Court to capacity for the second Battle for the Paddle spirit competition on Friday, Jan. 19 at SHS.

From hoops and wrestling, to dancing and cheerleading, to a battle of the bands, the night will feature a full slate of entertainment as the 4A Inland Empire League Lakeland Hawks come to town.

Per tradition, this competition rotates between sites and this year SHS will be hosting for the first time.

The Battle for the Paddle is is a true spirit competition, incorporating many of each school’s talented and dedicated students.

Girls basketball will kick things off at 4 p.m., followed by wrestling at 6 and boys basketball concluding the trio of sports competitions at 8.

Throughout the evening schools will display their bands, dance teams and cheerleading programs as well as student body spirit. There will be an artistic drawing contest, ear-splitting decibel readings, as well as a stomp routine performed by students from each school. The judges will award the Battle for the Paddle Trophy to the school with the most spirit at the end of the evening.

This annual event is a wonderful opportunity to teach and display sportsmanship, community pride and unite SHS students for a fun evening. Most importantly, it provides a platform for each school to raise money for charities of their choosing. Sandpoint High School has chosen Toys for Tots to be the recipient of the money raised.

Standard admission is $8, which includes a ticket, T-shirt and glow stick. A spirit pack may also be purchased for $12 including a ticket, T-shirt, glow stick, inflatable boxing glove and rally towel.

No discount will be given for ASB or Century Club Cards. Senior Citizens are free, but must pick up a ticket beforehand as organizers are expecting a sellout. Tickets are available at the SHS bookkeeper’s window and will be available during school hours until 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 19 unless we sell out earlier. Tickets will not be available Friday evening at the door, so please get your tickets early and come show your support.

for the hometown Bulldogs.
