The Twinsburg Lady Tigers basketball team already won the state championship and now they're pulling ahead in a national voting competition.
Twinsburg High School is leading all voting in the girls category of HighSchoolSports.net's Super 25-People's Champion contest. The school with the most votes by April 30 will earn its athletic department $1,000.
Twinsburg has a nice lead already with 26,000 votes, 6,500 more than second place New London High School in Wisconsin.
“We’re excited that we’re in the front and in the lead,” Athletic Director Alex Popovich said.

The athletic department is trying its best to promote the contest and has even sent out emails district-wide to get more votes.
But Twinsburg might be one of the only schools trying to do so. Popovich thinks most schools aren’t very aware of the contest because some of the votes are so low.
Third-place Goodrich High School, in Michigan, only has around 3,000 votes with 11 days left to vote.
“You can tell the votes just aren’t there for some of the other schools,” Popovich said. “Hopefully, we can keep this going and bring home the voting championship."
And of course, and extra $1,000 is a nice bonus.
“Yea, that always helps,” Popovich said.
