Behind the Scenes: Winner of Lip Sync

Alpha Xi Delta and Sigma Phi Epsilon sync their teeth into victory

Alpha Xi Delta and Sigma Phi Epsilon came out on top in this year’s Lip Sync contest, winning first place and People’s Choice.

“It was mainly about showing school spirit and unity,” Coach Kayla Dishon said. “There are many RSOs on campus and Lip Sync brings a lot of them together.”

Coach Dishon and Coach Elizabeth Boshoven worked together to put the songs together, schedule practice times, and teach the dances to the groups. Each team had four to five practices a week that lasted from one hour to two and a half hours.

“It’s been a couple of years since both teams have won,” Coach Elizabeth Boshoven said. “It’s nice to start off the year with a win.”

Everyone involved in the event did their very best, but with the hard work and dedication of everybody, Alpha Xi Delta and Sigma Phi Epsilon took home the win.

“It was tough competition,” Boshoven said. “Everyone did an amazing job and I’m very proud of my team for bringing the win home.”

The songs played in the event were “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “ABC,” “My Girl,” “Do You Love Me,” “Dance With Somebody,” and “Sign Sealed Delivered.”

Each team was a pleasure to work with for Boshoven and Dishon.

“I loved working with both teams,” Boshoven said. “They really stepped up and were very focused. It was really a pleasure getting to know the new members of Alpha Xi Delta and Sigma Phi Epsilon better and work with them. They’re a great group of people.”

Pre-nursing freshman Maribeth Frick was in the contest for her very first time.

“It was so much fun not only becoming closer with my pledge class, but also making friends with the boys of Sigma Pi Epsilon,” Frick said.

“Everyone got so into the dancing that it made it that much more fun.”

Frick’s experience in Greek life is a little over a month old, but she’s already enjoying her time with her new family.

“I have been involved in Greek life for only about a month now,” Frick said. “Being so involved on campus makes college so much more enjoyable.”
