Greeks battle it out at Tug

Whitney Allen

Several ‘tuggers’ compared the anxiety and build up of each pull to war on Friday afternoon at the WKU agriculture farm as fraternities and sororities battled it out at ‘tug’. For the men, Alpha Gamma Rho emerged victorious after defeating Farmhouse. Kappa Delta was the overall champion for sororities and Alpha Delta Pi came in second.

Last year’s fraternity champion, Delta Tau Delta came in third place this year after defeating the brothers of Alpha Tau Omega. Louisville senior Nate Allen was on the rope for the first time this year. “I feel like we could have done better but AGR and Farmhouse are really good,” Allen said. “I think we gave it all we got.”

Kappa Delta’s victory made it the tenth consecutive year they’ve won tug.

Alpha Gamma Row was happy to regain the title of champion after falling in the second round last year. Cross Plains, Tenn. junior Michael Eidson has tugged for the past three years.

“We worked our butts off this year,” Eidson said. “it took a little while to get in the grove as a team but after that I feel sorry for anybody against us.”
