Juniors and Seniors prepare for powderpuff

The annual Powderpuff Football game will take place on May 9, at approximately 2:45 p.m., on the old soccer field in Paradise. The match comes with big competition, as the junior and senior girls compete for bragging rights and the title of Powderpuff Victors.

Chaperones and refs will be teachers; the coaches of the teams are a group of boys from each grade. Due to injuries that occurred in the 2010-2011 school year game, the match this year will be flag football with no contact allowed. Seniors Haley Stultz and Courtney Lindsay both suffered severe injuries last year: Stultz left the game with a broken collarbone and Lindsay hyperextended her elbow.

“I wish it was tackle and the rules were more laid back, but it’s been something I’ve been looking forward to for a while,” junior Francine Wright said.

There have been some disagreements about the rules of the game this year. Many of the juniors want tackle, but the seniors don’t want another year of people getting hurt. The juniors wanted to design their own jersey, but tradition has always been that the seniors design the jerseys for themselves and for the class below them.

“There’s been a lot of tension about it, whether it should be flag or contact, why the juniors can’t design their own jerseys, a bunch of stuff. So I’m anxious for game day to see how this all plays out. I hope a bunch of people come out to watch. I want to graduate with a win,” senior Maggie Dames said.
