Penn State Student-Athletes Rock The HUB During Annual Lip Sync Battle

Penn State’s Student-Athlete Advisory Board hosted its annual lip sync battle benefitting THON featuring student-athletes from twelve of Penn State’s sports teams.

Among others, student-athletes from men’s & women’s hockey, men’s & women’s volleyball, men’s swimming, and track & field competed in the event, which was held in Freeman Auditorium in the HUB. Mike The Mailman appeared as a special guest judge alongside two THON families — the Buckleys and Messinas.

The men’s swimming team took home the prestigious golden microphone award as the winners of the event for their rendition of “Low” by Flo Rida. Both volleyball teams followed closely behind in second and third place, respectively.

Men’s volleyball finished in second after recreating the scene from Mean Girls where the cast performs “Jingle Bell Rock” as part of their high school’s winter talent show, while women’s volleyball made the podium with its performance of “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You” from Mulan.

SAAB’s annual lip sync battle has become a pre-THON tradition in recent years; the event is held in the weeks leading up to THON and tickets are sold for the event to raise money, all #FTK, of course. Penn State’s student athletes use the opportunity to brush up on their dancing skills ahead of the THON Pep Rally, when they’ll perform even more elaborate routines for a pumped-up crowd at the Bryce Jordan Center.
