On October 26, 2018 Warren Hills hosted the first Powderpuff game held in recent history.

Senior and junior students reversed gender roles in the classic flag football game. The girls faced off in the game while the boys dressed up in cheerleader uniforms and rooted them on. 

Senior player Lexi Westley said, “I thought it was one of the most fun things I’ve done in the year so far.  We were with so many of our friends and we were all so excited.  It was just so much fun to play with everyone.  We were singing and dancing and making fun of ourselves in front of everybody, and we were all just making the most of it.”

The students were coached and practiced during the weeks before the game in order to prepare.

Junior coach Cameron Jozowski said, “I thought it was fun and would definitely do it again.” 

Senior player Morgan DeMayo also commented, “The practices were great, we practiced our plays and routes to find an open space to get the ball.  Just being a part of the Powderpuff game was a different experience and a very clever and fun way to switch it up a little. I wish I wasn’t a senior because I really want to play in another Powderpuff game here.”

And switch it up they did. A great amount of the community showed up to watch and participate.

Senior cheerleader James Jordan said, “The whole game was a great turn out.  We should have another one because of how many people came.”

The senior male cheerleaders learned an entire halftime routine that they performed at the game.  All of the cheerleaders constantly cheered on the girls and had a great time themselves.

“It was a fun atmosphere and I enjoyed the experience.  I would do it again,” said junior cheerleader Adam Stanneck.

Although the seniors won this time, the juniors are ready for the next Powderpuff game.

  “We played a good game and we played hard.  We gave it our best and it was a close game.  We grew as a team throughout the game and are ready for a rematch,” said junior player Skylar Warren.

After the game, there was a bonfire held behind the school to close off the night.  Everyone was able to hang out and talk about the game and how much of a great time they had.

Senior class Advisor Heather White said, “It was one of the best events I ever advised. I smiled for the whole weekend.  Without the help of [Varsity cheerleader] Maddie Hamas none of it would have been possible.  I’m just so proud of everyone.”
