The women of Alpha Kai Omega claimed their first ever Sing Song title in club history Saturday night, while the class of 2013 won their third straight mixed voice title and the men of Gamma Sigma Phi captured their 10th title in 11 years. A full list of the winners can be found here.
Alpha Kai Omega director Leah Cameron, junior family studies major from Houston, said she’s happy to bring the club its first win in Sing Song history.
“We had it once and they took it from us, so this one means even more,” Cameron said. “We had fun and worked hard.”
Brittany Polnisch, senior art major from Baytown, said the win made her decision to pledge in her senior year even better.
“This is really exciting to win my first Sing Song with these girls,” Polnisch said. “I’m proud of everyone and especially Leah. The experience was great.”
The winning acts will donate their prize of $1,000 to charity of their choice. Alpha Kai will donate their winnings to Love 146.
Emily Fleming, junior accounting major from Keller, said she enjoyed her time working on this Sing Song and is already looking forward to next year.
“It was a lot of work and there were a lot of late nights, but we had a blast the whole time,” Fleming said. “I will definitely do Sing Song next year. I met a lot of new people and it was a great way to branch out.”
If the class of 2013 wins the mixed division next year, the class will have swept its entire four years at ACU. Nick Tatum, family studies major from Lubbock, has directed the class acts the first three years.
“I’m totally humbled by another victory,” Tatum said. “We’re pumped for next year.”
The junior class will donate their winnings to Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation.
Gamma Sigma Phi claimed it’s fourth straight Sing Song victory and 10th win in the last 11 years.
Connor VanSteenberg, sophomore business management major from Conroe, said the up-and-down results the club received proved to make the win more exciting.
“It was a roller coaster of emotions after we got second place for appearance Saturday afternoon but then we came back and won everything that night,” VanSteenberg said. “We worked so long and hard, but all this work has paid off.”
Gamma Sigma Phi will donate their prize money to Habitat for Humanity.
Alpha Kai, Gamma Sigma Phi and the soon-to-be seniors will defend their titles next year, when the theme will be “Sing Song Vacation.”
