This team consisted of members from the participating sororities and fraternities. This step show also featured members of Kappa Alpha Psi from Louisiana Tech.
The competition heated up with an opening performance by Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., which featured a “Charm School” like theme. They were however not to be outdone by members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. The AKAs prevailed in a close win with the score Zeta Phi Beta 348 points and Alpha Kappa Alpha 354 points.
Although a smaller competition than previous years both teams represented Grambling State University well to on lookers. Alpha Kappa Alpha will go on to represent Grambling at the 2007 Bayou Classic Step Show and were also honored with a five hundred dollar check.
