Students’ share excitement over annual powderpuff game

Touchdowns. Fumbles. Tackles. As the year comes to an end, the time comes around for the annual powderpuff game. 

As the girls took the place of the football players and the boys took the place of cheerleaders, students claim that one of the highlights of the event was the bonding experience it brought.

“I feel like powderpuff really brought people together and I think it was a good way to end the year,” senior Laci Dorough said. “Our class has some strong bonds and powderpuff gave us the chance to end on a good note working together with everyone and having fun.”

With everything chaotic going on at the game, students still had a blast.

“My powderpuff experience was very fun, exciting, and competitive,” junior Gemma Roach said. “Even with a little chaos, I am thankful to be able to have played & be able to play with my girls.”

Others, who are more competitive, enjoyed the competition and the adrenaline of the game.

“I enjoyed the competition and competitiveness of the games and it’s honestly amazing to see everyone coming together over a simple game,” sophomore Carly Paugh said. “I think it shows a lot about the pride in our community.”

The girls were also able to work together as a team to try their best to win.

“It was a really good way for us girls to get closer together and work together for what we wanted,” junior Lexie Wachner said.

While the girls played football, the boys were able to teach the girls how to play the game.

“You know I had fun being able to teach the girls how to play football,” senior De’Von Lovelady said. “It was fun to coach them.”
