Skills, fear drive annual powder puff classic

Amidst all the pulling of hair and wrestling for the ball, the girls have only one thing in mind: to win at all costs. Powder puff is the annual royal rumble in which the female students on campus contend for bragging rights in the form of a flag football tournament on Nov. 26 from noon to 3 P.M.

“I’m looking forward powder puff,” Michelle Nachtigall, ’04, said. “I can’t wait to fight for the trophy and give everything I have to win.”

Many upper class men are looking forward to this years’ event as an opportunity to claim victory after being dominated by the class of 2003.

“I am really excited to play this year, and since I’m a senior this year it makes it even more fun,” Tara Thompson, ’04 said. “Although I love the freshman, it is part of tradition to push them around a little during the game.”

Though many female upper classmen anticipate playing in the event, some new powder puff faces may feel unsure as to what to expect.

“I’m a little scared to play,” Ashley Davis, ’07, said. “We haven’t practiced at all, and I’m worried that the seniors will kill us.”

Girls are not the only students involved. Guys are needed to fill the role as coach and help their classmates clench the trophy.

“I enjoy coaching because I get to have some control over girls,” Jeremy Ramos, ’07, said. “I hope my experience as a football player will help them.”

Many other students enjoy watching the games for entertainment purposes.

“I love watching powder puff,” Tyler Wiebe, ’04, said. “It is always good to see girls duke it out and not care who’s watching.”

More than playing the actual game goes into making powder puff successful. The class t-shirts help unify the teams.

“The shirts are an important part in the spirit of powder puff because it gives the teams a sense of unity,” Tara Albrechtson, ’06, said. “I hope this years shirts are unique and interesting.”

For more information on powder puff parents and students can contact the high school office at 299-1695, ext. 5.
