Homecoming spirit transformed into mouthguards, jerseys and facepaint as part of the powderpuff tournament. According to senior McKenna Prauda, the teams practice for about three weeks before taking the field against their opponents.

The seniors dominated the field against the sophomores from the beginning of the match, when they scored a pick six on the first play.  They also intercepted three sophomores passes.  The sophomores fumbled several times during the first half, and had difficulty advancing due to the seniors’ defense.  The seniors won the first game, 52-0.

The next game between the juniors and the freshmen was closer.  The freshmen scored first and played defensively for the rest of  the game. In the second half, the juniors pressed the offensive and intercepted one pass from the freshmen.  The final score was 22-14, and the juniors advanced to the final round against the seniors.

If the game against the freshmen and juniors was close, then the championship was a nailbiter.  The seniors’ offense moved the football down the field, but would slow down in the red zone due to the juniors’ defense before scoring.  The juniors struggled with incomplete passes throughout the game.  It was not enough to stop the seniors from winning the championship with a score of 8-6.

According to Prauda, the secret to staying focused and doing well is to have fun and to remember to play as a team.  It is her third year playing powderpuff as a member of the offensive line and as a cornerback.

““It’s a fun atmosphere with all the girls, because all of us want the same thing, we all want to win,” Prauda said.
