The video submitted by Basehor-Linwood High School senior Courtney Inlow to an online Adidas fragrance contest trailed its opponent 846 votes to 760 as of about 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Only three of the 16 videos in the contest had received 500 or more votes so far. The more than 1,600 votes cast in the matchup between BLHS and Wilmington High School of Wilmington, Ohio, had easily outpaced the seven other matchups in this round.
