Greek Week update!

Greek Week 2008 isn't over yet- but here is an update!

: We lost our first game in soccer in penalty kicks! Tough loss, but we put up a good fight! (In other news, DG continues to dominate in regular season intramural soccer. This past week, they shut out Kappa Delta 5-0)

Kickball: Lost our first match. 

Chad 5K: The Chad 5K was held last Saturday morning, and it was freezing! It even started to snow! But that did not stop our girls from running! We had 3 girls finish right up in the front (at least within the top 15 for girls)- Kelli Rogers, Danielle Livingston, and Katie Pusateri. Great job girls! 
Basketball: We were all psyched to see our girls play again, after a successful regular season. We came out in full spirit- with costumes, posters, even 'noodles' with our letters on them. We won our first game against Pi Beta Phi, and our girls played awesome! At on point, we were up by 20 points! We lost the second game against Kappa, but again, our girls put in a good fight!

Tug-o-War: What an event! It was freezing outside last Sunday afternoon, and we were all tired from Formal, but girls came out to tug away! The event was a best out of three for the girls, and then best out of three for boys. Un fortunately, most of the girls we had were tiny- and the other sororities easily pulled us down, but the KA and AEPi boys did great! In our first round against Alpha Chi Omega, the girls lost, but then the boys redeemed us. We went into 'overtime', where four girls and four guys from each team tugged together. It was tough, but we were victorious. In our second match up, we lost, but our guys put up a good fight. This was a really great bonding event for the guys and girls, because we got to compete together and everyone cheered the 'tuggers' on. By far, my favorite Greek Week event this year!
Fling: Fling prelims were Wednesday night, and boy- did DG represent! Not only did we have a great 'Inspector Gadget' inspired skit (way to go skitters and dancers!), but we also had two dancers in the production dance (Libby Preiss and Sara Liechti), singers in an in-between act (Lindsay Niday and Lindsay Short), and our wonderful house mom Chris in an in-between act with the other 'House Mom Hotties' (she was the hottest though!)! And, the Greek Week Steering Committee's Fling Director was Hillary Overfelt, another DG! Way to represent girls!

Service: We have been doing great in service! Last weekend, a group of girls volunteered at Special Olympics' 'Victory Village' in a Canadian-themed booth. We also collected a ton of cans for the blood drive- way more than the required amount. We also delivered 11 baskets to the neccesities drive, instead of the normal 4 or 5. Way to show what Greek Week is really about!
Blood: We did great in the blood drive this year. The blood committee, lead by liaison Laura Schneider, made sure they called or text messaged everyone the night before reminding them of their blood time, and we even had shuttles running to and from the Hearnes Center all day giving people rides. Great job blood committee!

Like I said, Greek Week is NOT over! We still have Flag Football and Volleyball this weekend! Wish us luck!
