10 Questions With Springfield THON

Hannah Woytowicz of Springfield THON was nice enough to give us a few moments of her time and answer a few of our questions.

1. How are you involved with THON?

I am the Social Chair for Springfield THON.

2. What is your team doing this weekend?

We're going to be standing as long as we can with as many people as we can to support our dancers.

So Why Do We Dance?

For the first time in my life, I got a good behind-the-scenes look at what happens before the dancers come out....and Yes, that is right. I attended a dancer meeting!

Unfortunately I got there a little late (I went to the IM Building instead of the Multiplex Sport Complex...a mistake that is easy to make), but I was fortunate enough to catch up for the final bits of the meeting.

2010 Line Dance Full Text

Our friends over at the Daily Collegian transcribed the lyrics...

Penn State, look around/ See this love that we have found

New decade: 2010/ For the Kids once again
BJC, show your pride/ Move your Diamonds side to side
Lions, Tigers, Mud, oh my!/ Joe Paterno, still our guy
Homecoming in the snow/ Sorry to see PJ go
Women volley for three-peat/ National Champs, can't be beat!

The rest is after the jump.

THON 2010

First THON Impressions

I'd never heard of THON until I came to Penn State. While that doesn't exactly set me apart from a huge amount of people, right now I just really have no idea what THON is. People have tried to explain it to me, but those explanations always end up with, "You have to see it."

I'm in Press Row at the BJC looking on, still not really too sure what I'm watching. Right now the dancers are coming through the tunnel of people onto the floor, and I can only imagine what it must feel like to have such a huge array of people cheering you on, and cheering on the cause.
