0000-IM-1053565797



In what came down to a sprint-finish for the second consecutive year, Delta Gamma has prevailed as the champions of the 26th women's Little 500.

Delta Gamma's Kayce Doogs outsprinted Kappa Alpha Theta's Kathleen Chelminiak for the title, as the two teams finished 1-2; the same order they finished in 2012.

Delta Gamma is the sixth team in women's Little 500 history to win back-to-back races. The most recent team to accomplish the feat was Teter in 2010 and 2011.

Heading into the final three laps, Delta Gamma's title chances were less than certain, however. On lap 98, Kappa Kappa Gamma began its sprint to the finish line and held a sizeable lead heading into the last lap.

As the teams progressed through turns one and two, Kappa's lead diminished as both Delta Gamma and Theta closed in. By turn three, Delta Gamma had taken the lead and held it all the way to the finish line.
