Powder-Puff Recap

The annual Powderpuff Game occurred November 16th, 2016 at 2:45 between the class of 2017 and the class of 2018. The junior and senior girls participated in a game of flag football, including referees, student coaches, and male “cheerleaders”. The event included food, a half-time show put on by the male cheerleaders, announcers narrating the game, and the game itself.

Practices for the game began mid October as each team planned out plays, their players positions, and strategy. “It was stressful but fun,” explained AJ Hall (’18), student coach, on the day of the game. “We have a a couple of exciting plays that we hope will catch them off guard.”

The Powderpuff game was originally supposed to occur on November 15th, but was postponed due to rain. “I wanted the PowderPuff players and coaches to get a good crowd to show off all their planning and practicing,” explained Ms. Gleason, the class advisor for the class of 2018 and the Juniors’ powderpuff advisor. The game ended up having a good turnout, with over seventy-five students in the bleachers cheering on the teams in the warm sixty-degree weather. Those watching the game enjoyed hot Garden Catering, pizza, caramel apples,and other food and drinks from the concession stand.

The Junior and Senior girls played for two 20 minute halves, with a running clock. At halftime, the male cheerleaders then raced onto the field to perform a halftime dance off. The Junior cheerleaders danced to Juju On That Beat, with a few Senior cheerleaders joining in competitively. The Seniors performed their dance rendition to the “Cha Cha Slide”. The players then took their positions on a field again to battle out the last half.

After playing hard for the final twenty minutes, the exhausted players scrambled for the ball one last time as the buzzer went off. The final score ended up being 8-2, with the excited Senior class as the winners. “Normally, the seniors win each year, so we were definitely happy about it… We appreciated all of their volunteering to bring us the win,” said Mr. Heaslip, Senior class advisor. The senior class powderpuff team is leaving NHS with a win, and the junior class team hopes to do the same next year.
