Powderpuff game helps boost school spirit for Homecoming week

Last Thursday night, Metea held its annual Powderpuff game at Mustang Stadium for another exciting homecoming event. Two teams consisting of junior girls and another two of senior girls battled each other in flag football for the Powderpuff championship title. Each team was able to sponsor an organization or charity to raise money for their respective causes.

“[Powderpuff] allows people who normally don’t get involved for homecoming week or football get involved by either [a] donation to one of the Powderpuff charities, or just [to] come and watch the game,” junior Abby Widd said.

With the football team consisting of only male student athletes, the Powderpuff game gave female student athletes the chance to experience the sport. It also gave other students and their parents the chance to see others play the sport if they haven’t already.

“I think it’s great. It’s a chance for the other students who [have] only seen football games to see our girls play,” sophomore Anjelica Mendez said.

“Powderpuff gives the girls a chance to get involved in playing, and it is all for a good cause [too],” Widd said.

As it was the week of Homecoming and spirit week, the Powderpuff game was one of the many events that Metea had to get students to participate in school spirit and get them excited for the annual homecoming dance and football game. While the night continued on, the Metea community was able to come out, show school spirit, and support the girls on the teams. If they wanted to, they were also able to donate to the four Powderpuff charities.

“I think that the events leading up to something big, like a school dance, makes the memories a lot better. When you look back, instead of just remembering a dance, you remember other things, like the Powderpuff games or Chalk the Walk,” Mendez said.
