TIFFIN—Tiffin University’s Student Athletic Advisory Committee hosted a talent show on Tuesday night that showed cased 13 acts and many laughs.
Some of the acts included dancing, playing the piano, comedy, sport specific skills, and solving a Rubik’s Cube.
The talent show is an annual event designed to show case the hidden talents of TU students and to get SAAC members involved in outreach, SAAC representative and event host Olivia Davis said. The event began at 7:30 p.m. and there was not an empty seat in the room.
Each sports team entered an act and competed against each other for the title of “2018 SAAC Talent Show Champion.” Athletic Director Lonny Allen, Provost Dr. Peter Holbrook and Dr. Kelly Daniels volunteered as judges for the contest.
Once all the acts were completed three finalists were called up to the stage. The finalists were the swim and dive team who performed magic, the women’s soccer team and their edition of a popular Saturday Night Live skit, and the softball team who choreographed a synchronized swimming routine.
Softball player Chelsey Trusty said, “We were all really nervous. I was shaking before we went on stage because I was so nervous.”
Davis announced that the softball team had won, much to the delight of Trusty and her teammates, “I was happy we won. I was excited when we won because the softball team had never won it before.”
The softball team was not the only group of people who left the event smiling. Davis spoke very highly of the event, “We had a fun night, and couldn’t have asked for a better turn out!”
The next SAAC sponsored event is Thursday, February 8 at the men’s and women’s basketball games against Ferris State. They will be raising money and selling t-shirts to donate to the Make-a-Wish foundation. First tip is at 5:30 p.m. in the Gilmore Student Center.
