'asically a swimming competition between
teams representing fraternities and sororities, Anchor Splash was the most popular fundraiser for the
Delta Gamma sorority.
University of Tennessee Delta Gammas were the
first to sponsor Anchor Splash. Today, more than
half the Delta Gamma chapters sponsor this event
annually and raise thousands of dollars for scholarships for visually handicapped students and local
blind schools and blind organizations.
The swimming events ranged from serious to
downright zany. Tasmanian Yoo Hoo was the favorite event among the swimmers. In this event, the
competitors swam in a raft and "yoo hoo" as loud as
they could. Some other events included a Beautiful
Eyes Contest, Mr. Anchor Splash, and a spirit competition. Vanessa Post summmed up the whole experience by saying, "It's really great to see fraternities and sororities pulling together and having
fun for a good cause." -Sabrina Bonet
