Students didn’t let chilly weather and Game 2 of the World Series sap their school spirit as they gathered Wednesday evening for the annual Jayhawk Jingles competition at the Adams Alumni Center. While the crowd feasted on free food from local favorites Johnny’s Tavern and Torched Goodness, nine sorority-fraternity teams got psyched up to showcase their talents and honor this year’s Homecoming theme, Ghosts of Jayhawks Past.
The competition is one of Homecoming’s most entertaining traditions and encourages students to exercise their creativity by singing, dancing and performing skits. This year’s teams truly embraced the Halloween spirit, dressing up as ghosts and zombies and spinning their own lyrics to popular tunes such as “Thriller” and “Ghostbusters.” One team even sketched out a hilarious Scooby-Doo comedy routine, complete with villainous Oklahoma Sooners who had captured Baby Jay.
Judging this year’s competition were Alumni Association National Board Members Shelle Hook McCoy, d’73; and Don, c’61, m’65, and Carolyn “Kay” Cromb Brada, c’61, who had the difficult job of determining which teams would take home top honors.
Winners in the Greek life category were:
First place: Sigma Kappa and Delta Chi
Second place: Kappa Alpha Theta and Sigma Nu
Third place: Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Alpha Epsilon
Delta Lambda Phi and LOTUS (Leaders of Tomorrow, Unbreakable Sisterhood) took first place in the student life category.
