Seniors Hold Onto Powderpuff Crown By Defeating Juniors


On Monday, November 21st, the senior class took on the junior class in the annual powderpuff match after school to benefit the local food bank. This annual tradition is a fundraiser football game where the girls line up to play while the boys cheer them on.

The Class of 2017 won 36-25 after taking the lead in the 1st half with a pair of touchdowns scored by Abby Harrell.

Senior quarterback Kendall Eaton scored a touchdown of her own in the second half and was excited about the outcome after the game.

“I threw one pick but as a team I think we did good. Individually and as a team we all worked together cause a lot of us played together last year so we really had an advantage,” Eaton said.

The juniors were led by a few quarterbacks – one of them junior Liza Newbold was happy with the team’s play despite the loss.

“We all had moments, but overall we played together as a team,” said Newbold.

Ultimately it was about helping a worthy cause and the Powderpuff game donated over 1,000 non-perishable items for the Prince George Food Bank. In total the game earned $549 in admissions.
