TCU’s Delta Gamma took advantage of perfect football weather last weekend when they put on their annual Anchorbowl flag football tournament.  

Despite the nice weather, the event took place inside, but it wasn’t just anywhere.

Teams had the privilege of playing on the turf of AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys, to be the last team standing in a knockout-style bracket. 

The event consisted of members from Interfraternity Council fraternities, Panhellenic sororities, clubs on campus and any TCU students who wanted to form a team.

All afternoon, shouts of celebration after touchdowns and cheers from teammates echoed across the stadium. Members of Delta Gamma were seen all over the field as coaches and organizers, making sure games were on schedule.

“It was a really cool experience to play on the AT&T field,” Kelly Owen, a junior biology major and captain of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority’s team, said. “It was super fun to support another sorority on campus, too.”

The entire field in AT&T Stadium’s was full with up to four games being played at once in 10-minute halves. In a knockout-style bracket, teams fought to avoid elimination.

After the chaos, TCU’s Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity were crowned Anchorbowl champions.

After the games, teams had the opportunity to tour the locker rooms of the Dallas Cowboys football players and cheerleaders.

All proceeds from the event raised money for Delta Gamma’s philanthropy organization, Service for Sight, which advocates for people with visual impairments.

The organization also operates five schools for visually impaired children. 

Led by junior Amber Jensen, the sorority’s vice president of foundation, the event raised $60,000. It nearly doubled last year’s amount of over $32,000.
