There were more than 200 people present in the Skyhawk Fieldhouse on Saturday, Oct. 4 for this year’s NPHC Greek Step Show.
This year’s step show featured three groups in the sorority division and four groups in the fraternity division. Each performance kept both the audience and the judges anticipating every second of the show.
As time passed, the only sound that could be heard was that of every person in the building. The groups entertained each other, as well as the audience, with numerous of line dances, as they waited patiently for the judges to tally up the scores.
Finally, after a long night of spectacular performances, the audience became silent and the winners were announced.
The men of Kappa Alpha Psi and the ladies of Zeta Phi Beta from the were named the 2003 NPHC Greek Step Show winners.
“It feels great. This is the third show we have stepped in in the last five years and this is our second first place win. It feels really good. We prayed before and after every practice and we believed in ourselves,” said Zeta Phi Beta member Jihan Tucker, a senior political science major from Nashville.
“Our victory makes me feel very happy and proud. We sacrificed all we had and our performance was a good way to get our name back out there in a positive way. Now we’re going to try to build onto that victory and do some more positive things on the yard,” said Kappa Alpha Psi vice president Johnny Moore, a senior education major from Memphis.
