Elizabeth City State University is known for its Pre-Game and Pre-Dawn events during homecoming week.

For the spring time, Viking Fest is a huge event that many young alumni and current students look forward to.This year the annual Pre-Game was moved to the gymnasium so that meant a larger stage.

Many organizations put on a great performance from the school’s dance team to the cheerleaders. Halloween came alive in many performances. As each organization cheered on the next, everyone anticipated each others performance.  What took the crowd by storm is the two modeling troupes. VIKE NU M.O.D.E.L.S. suddenly walked across the court and slayed all the way to their seats dressed in fashionable Halloween costumes. This sent the crowd into a screaming storm.

As they took their seats slowly, everyone knew that Elite Modeling Company was not far behind. Dressed in all black, the models froze in position until it was time to take the stage.

As they took the stage it was only moments before the fun dissing started. Elite Models began to rip the runway and as they got to the front of the stage, you could feel the tension in the air. They began looking directly at the Vike NU M.O.D.E.L.S. and cutting them like a knife slicing the air. All of a sudden two of the Vike NU M.O.D.E.L.S. took a seat and a book and made the floor right in front of the stage their comfortable spot to be entertained. As one began to read a book, showcasing a sign of boredom, the other sat in the chair looking disguised. At the same time, during the performance praises were sent to each other as they cheered on each others performance.  One alumnae of Vike NU M.O.D.E.L.S. stated, “The Elite Models are really doing their thing up there, Vike NU better be ready!”

One by one the Vike NU M.O.D.E.L.S. began filing to the front of the stage to watch Elite.  When the performance wrapped up, an alumnus member of Vike Nu slowly crept up on the stage. Making gestures of if she should go on stage toward the audience, she got closer and closer to the stage until she took stage at the end of Elite’s performance.  The crowd went up in an uproar of unbelief. As both troupes began ripping the runway around each other it was obvious that both came to play no games.

When it was time for Vike NU M.O.D.E.L.S. to perform, the audience was entertained with a melody of various songs and a tricky routine. Both troupes performed in their very own unique way. The pep rally included the football team making it a known statement that when they hit the field, it was click clack boom time!

Elizabeth City pulled off the homecoming game with a win over Virginia Union with a score of 24-21.
