Purple Wins Color Wars 2016

As the sun rises on the final day of THON 2016, dancers and DRCMs are sure to be exhausted. Staying on your feet for 46 hours takes quite the toll, but to take the dancers’ minds off the pain, DRCM created a little game: Color Wars.

Color Wars actually started more than a week ago when dancers and their DRCMs met at the Multi-Sport Facility to kick things off and participate in the first competition of the war: a giant rock-paper-scissors tournament. When Color Wars were introduced earlier in the weekend, orange was in the lead, but it didn’t last long.

The teams competed in different events throughout the weekend to keep their mind off the task of dancing for 46 hours straight, and a little friendly competition never hurt anybody. Some of the events dancers competed in included giant board games and Minute to Win It style games.

After the Color Wars Grand Finale, the points were tallied and a winner was presented. There was a tie for third between Blue (last years winner) and Red. Down to the final two, cheers erupted from the Purple team when the Color Wars captains announced Orange took second place, and Purple took the gold and bragging.

Purple was presented with the trophy on stage after sticking their team flag in the top of the pyramid. Congrats to the Purple team and keep the energy rolling everyone!
