Trojan spirit soars at Homecoming game, regatta
A week’s worth of Homecoming events concluded with the Trojans win against rival Arkansas State University 78-71 in front of a pumped crowd of about 5,300 people at the Jack Stephens Center on March 2.
Painted chests and a relentless Trojan spirit helped to once again secure Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity’s win for the most spirited student organization.
At halftime, Bre’Anna Green, a senior journalism major sponsored by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, was crowned queen.
Kappa Sigma fraternity paddled their way to victory for the second consecutive year March 1, in what has become one of the most anticipated events of the year, the third annual Homecoming Cardboard Boat Regatta in the Donaghey Student Center pool. Captain William Fortenberry, a sophomore international business major, and Cruz Eslick, a junior engineering major, manned their raft, the S.S. Rider.
The Office of Campus Life’s boat Peace, Love and Homecoming won the Pride of the Regatta, which was for the most creative design and best use of corrugated cardboard. The Best Dressed Team went to Kappa Delta sorority. The Team Spirit Award went to the UALR Biology Club; and the Titanic Award for the most spectacular sinking went the Chancellor’s Leadership Corps’ Raft of Servitude.
