Kearney Greeks united Tuesday Nov. 3 to cheer on the Tri-City Storm in their 2-1 victory over the Lincoln Stars.

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) in cooperation with the Panhellenic Council planned the Greek Storm at the Viaero Event Center in Kearney to improve Greek unity in the Kearney community.

Ben Schleiger, a Lincoln senior majoring in construction management and president of IFC, said, “The Greek Storm game gets the Greek members out into the community, along with publicizing the chapters by showing our support for the Storm.” With over 120 Greek members in attendance, support for the Storm was strong last Tuesday night.

Usually one of the biggest events for IFC, Greek Storm was planned in a hectic month as the members of IFC tried to piggyback the game with the Women’s Symposium. “Having the events on the same day would further the sororities and fraternities unity,” Schleiger said. “This allowed the fraternities to show their support of the sorority efforts with the Kearney community.”

The Greek Storm game marked the third time IFC and Panhellenic collaborated for what Schleiger hopes to become an annual event in Kearney. “We are hoping to expand the Greek Storm game and turn it into a philanthropic event in the future,” Schleiger said. “Working with Storm hockey was fun, and they are very willing to help with making this an even better event in the future.”
