As of Wednesday, February 22, Carlsbad High School has withdrawn from the Battle of the Fans competition.

According to an ASB statement posted by The Lancer Link, the recent events that took place at Sage Creek last week led the Lancers to remove themselves from the race. An excerpt from the brief follows:

“Although our student section has put in hours of effort to show their school pride, we all feel the decision to withdraw from the competition is necessary to demonstrate how seriously we take the events that occurred on Friday night at Sage Creek. As a whole, we believe that the displayed message does not represent the beliefs of our student body. In the future, we hope to use this situation as a reminder of the critical importance of good sportsmanship; we also hope this is a learning experience, underscoring our role as representatives of CHS and the Carlsbad community.”

KUSI reported that the decision for who will be the winner for Battle of the Fans among the remaining five competitors will be announced tonight.
