The Freshman pledge class of Alpha Omicron Pi won the University of Tennessee Lip Sync Junior Panhellenic event Oct. 19.
Delta Gamma came in second place and Alpha Delta Pi placed third. Eleven sororities participated in the event dancing and lip-syncing to hits from VH1's Top 100s.
"The thing that set us apart from everyone else is that we focused on lip syncing and had really creative moves and it wasn't just about dance," said Mary Kate Hallock, the coach for Alpha Omicron Pi.

Hallock was a participant last year, but now she reversed roles and was the coach. Her main focus this year was to improve on the things that went wrong when she was a participant.
Lip syncing wasn't just about a competition between sororities it was also a philanthropic event to better the Knoxville community.
Micah Johnson, the President of Panhellenic, stated the importance of the event.
"The Junior Panhellenic Lip Sync Event is Panhellenic's largest and most successfully philanthropic event of the year."
Johnson explained that for the past four years, Lip Sync has provided the Panhellenic and Greek Community with the resources needed to build a Habitat for Humanity home for an in need family in Knoxville."
