On Thursday, Oct. 11th 2014 the fourth annual Powder Puff football game took place in Mack Hummon Stadium between underclassmen and seniors.

Oakwood Giving and the football cheerleaders organized the event under the leadership of Melinda Wargacki and Heidi Steinbrink, the Oakwood Giving adviser and cheerleading coach respectively. The funds raised from the event are split among Oakwood Giving and the cheerleaders who will donate it to the charities of their choice.

The Powderpuff game is a new tradition in the school where students can play, coach or cheer during the game by buying t shirts and signing up for an all-girl game.

Because this is the fourth year the school has organized Powderpuff, the class of 2015 is the first to have had the opportunity to participate in the annual game all four years of high school.

“I did it freshman, sophomore and senior year but not junior year because I didn’t get to play freshman or sophomore year,” Hayley Sunshine (12) said. “I knew I would get to play this year and I knew it would be fun.”

After signing up and buying a t-shirt, participants decorated their “jerseys” with duct tape, paint and markers in preparation for the game. Five senior boys and one freshman boy posed as cheerleaders and even performed a half-time dance.

Although the seniors lost to underclassmen, the energy and camaraderie between all participants was positive and fun.

“I only did it [Powderpuff] this year since it’s my senior year.” Emily Gould (12),” said it was a lot of fun playing and creating the shirts.”
