As we continue our final round of voting to find out which high school has the best school spirit in Ocean County, here's where the competition stands as of this writing:

Central Regional vs. Manchester Township

Central Regional High School and Manchester Township High School have been locked in a back and forth battle since they were first announced as the finalists on Monday afternoon.

Not only has the lead switched hands a number of times, but at one point there was literally a single vote separating the two.

As of right now (2pm on Wednesday, 10/26), Central Regional has pulled ahead of Manchester with the widest lead yet of 59% - 40%, with a vote difference making it into the hundreds.

To give you an idea of how quickly things can change though, when I first got into work today, Central Regional was ahead by only 52% - 48%.

As you know, it is by no means a done deal at this point. The voting will continue until Monday (10/31) at Noon, so there is still plenty of time for Manchester to either take the lead, or for Central Regional to start building the coffin for Manchester's hopes.
