THON 2021 Pep Rally Performance Superlatives

Although THON may not have announced a pep rally winner this year, we still have some thoughts and opinions about this year’s performances.

In typical Onward State fashion, we sifted through the many backflips, jumps, and special appearances of the THON 2021 pep rally to highlight the best of the best.

Biggest Splash: Men’s Swimming & Diving

These guys got creative with their performance. They started their bit off in the pool and did their whole routine soaking wet. They may not have won the pep rally, but they sure won the wet t-shirt contest!

Best Vibes: Men’s Volleyball

Men’s volleyball was straight vibin’ to “Billy Jean.” The guys even threw some subtle Michael Jackson moves into their performance. All I can say is that they made me want to get up and dance with them.

Best Special Guest: Cheerleading

The cheerleading team used its Nittany Lion connections to its advantage during their performance. The Lion came out of nowhere and did four “Nittany Lion pushups,” whatever that means. Anyway, it was cool.

The Charli D’Amelio Award For Having Cool Transitions & Being Viral TikTok Material: Women’s Gymnastics

The women’s gymnastics team had some fire transitions. I swear the team’s performance was taken straight off of my For You Page. The performance flowed very well, and it would definitely go viral if they posted it on TikTok.

The 90s Boy Band Award For Being NSYNC: Men’s Gymnastics

I think everyone had pretty high expectations for the men’s gymnastics team. Although they were good, the fellas didn’t really stand out too much. They were, however, extremely in sync.

All-Around Best Performance: SuePa

Since THON didn’t announce a pep rally winner, we will: Sue Paterno won this competition by a mile. I think I speak for everyone when I say that Sue hyped everyone up more than all the other acts combined. That’s a fact.
