The Zeta Delta Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. at Delaware State University held their 12th Annual Stroll Competition and Variety Show this past Friday, March 29, 2018. The competition took place in Memorial Hall, where campus Sororities and Fraternities competed against one another for a grand prize of $300 to each.
Once the bleachers of the gymnasium filled, the show began. Before the Greeks competed, there were many different performances from different organizations on campus such as:
• Caribbean Student Association (CSA)
• African Student Association (ASA)
• 1Entity (1E) and
• Hidden Vanity (HV)
After these performances it was time for the Greeks to battle against one another. The first battle was between the Sisters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. The winning team was Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.
Michaela Ude-Lightfoot was a part of the winning Sorority and here’s what she had say, “It was super hard preparing for the competition. We had so many hours of practice each day, I always had to get my homework done before practice because I was never sure how long we would be there. We took practice so serious.”
Next, Michaela described her on-stage experience, “I was extremely nervous! I thought I was going to pass out because I was so scared to mess up in front of all those people. Once I got up there though, it felt way better because it’s all about muscle memory. I knew the steps, so I just had to get up there and execute and that’s what I did.”
And finally, what the victory was like for Michaela. “Being a part of the winning team felt amazing! We didn’t know what the other organizations was bringing to the table so we were a little scared at first, but we got up there and handled our business and brought the trophy home,” Michaela said.
Now, the Fraternity battle was between the Brothers of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. and Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Inc. The winners were the Brothers of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc.
Kordell Green was a member of the winning team and shared his experience as well. “It was very tiring; the practices were long and required a lot of physical endurance.” When he was on stage, he described his feelings as being nervous but relieved because it was “like practice with people watching.”
As far as winning, Kordell said, “WE GOT THAT ‘DUBBB!’ It felt great, and I got a lot of love after the win.”
The Stroll Competition was a great way of Greek life to be unified and celebrated on campus. Along with students and the general public.
