Juniors win coveted powder puff title

Once in a wintery, the best of the best come together to embark on a tradition that puts skill, agility, grace, talent and composure to the test. A time when crowds of spectators congregate to watch competition, adrenaline and emotion at its night. A time when the most obscure of mistakes defines the outcome. What is this great tradition you ask? No, it’s not Salt Lake City?it’s?Powder Puff.

Every year the ladies turned up on the practice field to show what they can do as football players. This year the all-girl event took place on the practice fields on Jan. 18.

“Powder Puff is fun because it’s a chance for us to run around with our friends, while getting a chance to beat the other three classes in a challenge!” Tricia Hill, ’03, said
While no one cared if the girls missed a pass or ran in the wrong direction, powder puff has always been a whole school event.

“The best part is that you don’t even have to know how to play,” Hillary Kell, ’05, said.
Although when the stars of the FCHS football team switch gears from the field to the coach’s playbook, the two sexes worked together on the field.

“Coaching powder puff was a blast,” Casey Belmont, ’02, said. “Powder Puff is a chance for the girls to get out there and show their stuff. A lot of them like football and was their one shot to play the game they love. Plus it was good entertainment.”

While all four classes put on a great show in front of the whole school, the junior girls took home bragging rights by beating the seniors in the final game.

Within each participant lurked the equivalent of a Pat Hill, David Carr or Rodney Wright. There was no telling where talent was hiding, waiting to be discovered on campus.

“This is my first year,” Danae Cook, ’05, said, “and I was really excited about playing.”

“Personally, I thought the freshman rocked it all the way down! Oh-yeah!” Kell said.
