The Zeta Tau Alpha sorority organized a Cornhole Tournament on Oct. 29 on the Quad between the library and Old Main.

The Cornhole tournament was held to help raise money for breast cancer awareness and education.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority took advantage of this.

“Our philanthropy is breast cancer education and awareness so we organized this event to raise money and support for that,” said Emma Worsham, a senior who helped organize the event.

Students who wanted to compete in the cornhole tournament were allowed to form a team of two to four students and had to pay a $5 entry fee person to compete with other teams.

When the tournament began there were 5 teams participating: Cornadoes, Baggin-N-Braggin, Beard Thompson Beard, Steal Yo Man and Woman and Cheese.

Before the cornhole tournament started the matches were set, and after each round the winning team would move on and face another team until the winners were decided.

The final teams to face off with each other and decide the champion of the cornhole were the Cornados and Baggin-N-Braggin.

The Baggin-N-Bragging were crowned champions and won a $50 visa gift card and a t-shirt.

Worsham said that the cornhole tournament was a success and raised $167.

“We plan on doing this again and we plan on making it an annual thing and we may try to do this again in the spring,” Taylor Beard said, who is a senior and the president of the sorority

The cornhole tournament was a success and the Zeta Tau Alpha society are planning on doing this fundraiser again to help combat breast cancer.
