As their performance ended one of their coaches, CJ Greer, a sophomore biology major, screamed “Oh my gosh, you boys are about to make me cry.”
Next up was Sigma Chi, and they chose to mimic the popular mime/dance group the Jabbawockeez as their theme this year. They sported all black attire with white face masks and white shoes.
