This year’s powderpuff game proved to be successful in more ways than one. From the money raised to the encouragement heard from the stands, the annual fundraiser gave students and families the opportunity to showcase their support for the players and a worthy cause. 

For starters, the community was able to come together to raise an impressive total of $1,618 at the gate from ticket sales and donations. Therefore, each organization- the Susan G. Komen and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation- will receive $809. 

Both the junior and senior class were also rewarded for their fundraising efforts, with the juniors receiving $290 from their bake sale and the seniors earning $203 from their 50/50 raffle. 

After a hard fight, the senior class was ultimately able to come out on top with a score of 8- 7. The winning touchdown was scored by Savannah Yount followed by a two- point conversion run by Anayah Womack, which ensured the team’s victory.  

“The senior girls played an amazing game,” coach Ben Yeckel said. 

Despite the girls’ rocky start, the team’s defense managed to make a remarkable comeback with the help of calls made by seniors Auggie Tortorea and Tristan Holland. 

Girls from both teams commented on how enjoyable the overall event was from a player’s perspective. 

“PowderPuff was a really fun experience! It allowed me the opportunity to play football with friends for a fundraiser, and that is something remarkable,” senior Alexandra Scherrah stated.
