Greek Week pulls through with Tug-o-War
Immediately following the Greek Picture, Greek Week continued with Tug-o-War in Strawberry Stadium. The event, held on Wednesday, Apr. 5 from 6:30 p.m. until it was over, saw different fraternities and sororities come together to compete against each other or to work together. The event was held in a tournament style competition where the different teams would continuously fight against each other to gain the top spot.
The ultimate winners were Team Willy Wonka, which had a combined force of members from Phi Mu, Kappa Sigma and Theta Chi.
Jordan Holcomb, a member of Kappa Sigma and a senior majoring in integrated science and technology shared some of his feelings on how it felt to win, and how he and his team won the competition. “It feels great,” said Holcomb. “You know, there was actually a lot of technique we put in, so there was a lot involved. To go into more detail though, we sent messages and techniques to each other. We even got into the force and the math and stuff, and the correct way to do things. So that’s really what we did. We learned the technique and we played to win, not to lose.”
The team was built of Alee Hess, a sophomore majoring in business administration, Allie Gressaffa, a sophomore education major, Skylar Erickson, a senior biology major, Zachary Gaillot, a sophomore history major and Ben Zahn, a junior business administration major. The team put in much time and effort both in the game and outside of it with making sure everyone was up to speed and knew what was going to be going on.
“Well, we really pulled through,” said Hess. “We got a group message, sent a wiki out. We’ve got some physics majors and engineers, so brains and brawn went into this. There’s only one thing we like more than a W and that’s food.”
To the team, the event was a lot of fun. Members felt that it was absolutely worth doing and look forward to continuing it in the future.
“It was great,” said Holcomb. “It was very competitive. It’s really great for Greek Week. I think we should definitely keep doing it. It was just a lot of fun. I think we all enjoyed it.”
