Letter From an Underclassman

        Dear upperclassmen,                                                                                        It’s important for you to know that I was very nervous the first day, as many of my fellow freshmen were I’m sure, but I was even more nervous for the second day of […]

Powder Puff!

Powder Puff!

UPDATE: In a landslide game, the Seniors crushed the Juniors, winning with a score of 7-77
       

        The annual Powder Puff game is on November 6th at Hillsboro Stadium, with many participants, we can estimate a good turnout.

        The deadline for the powderpuff applications was October 11th, and many people signed up for football and cheer. Practices are well underway, which leaves lots of excitement for both players and students who plan to watch.

        Although most upperclassmen know what Powder Puff is, some newcomers may not. Powder Puff is an annual game held that allows junior and senior girls to show off their football skills by playing against each other- Juniors play against Seniors. The junior and senior boys also have a chance to show off their cheer skills during the game.

        Although it’s football, no tackling is allowed and it mainly follows the rules of flag football, making it a non contact sport.

        Each team has seven players and a flag on each side that the other team is trying to acquire. Players can get a down if they get the flag pulled off their side. It follows the main rules of football, but no contact to avoid injuries.

       As for the cheer portion, the participants cheer at the sidelines of the game, just like a regular football game.

        Although treated like a normal season game, all attendees will be required to pay $2 to enter, the theme of the game will be black-out so all students are encouraged to dress up and  have school spirit!
