On Oct. 25, the senior girls won their third consecutive PowderPuff football game.

The freshmen and sophomores did not have enough players for two teams so they combined into one. The seniors received a bye in the first round and the combined freshman/sophomore team played against the juniors.

The juniors won and met the seniors in the final. The seniors beat the juniors to win their third PowderPuff in a row.

As well as playing in the game, senior Sam Hidalgo, as a member of Senior Senate, was involved in organizing the game.

“You have to plan who’s going to be there, what the admission prices will be, [and] you have to make sure that you get slips from everyone so that the people who are playing on the field are going to stay safe,” Hidalgo said.

It takes about a month to prepare for the game.

“We started about a month before and we thought about flyers we were going to put out and [what] the colors of each team [would be],” Hidalgo said. “[We also had to think about] what would be required of each team and what materials we would need, like flags and the footballs.”

Hidalgo said while the organizing part was more administrative, the real fun came in playing on the field and winning for the third year in a row.

“It was a lot of fun playing with your friends and classmates,” Hidalgo said.

Despite coming up short, the juniors also enjoyed the game.

“My favorite part was getting to knock people on their butts,” said junior Courtney Swift who participated in PowderPuff for the first time.

Swift said she’s definitely planning on playing next year.
