On Sunday, Nov. 13 the annual Powder Puff Game was held at Alumni Stadium to raise funds for Project Graduation. In this long-time tradition, boys and girls switch the player-cheerleader roles.

Throughout the week before the game, the students involved were required to attend a few practices.

“It was a lot of fun but it also took a lot of new knowledge that we had to learn,” senior Mia Kane said.

Sarah Ouellette and many others from Project Graduation helped put on this year’s competition.

“It is quite an undertaking, there’s a lot of volunteers needed, a lot of coordination and all that, but it was a lot of fun, we had a great time!” she said.

During halftime, the cheerleaders put on a show for the audience followed by a tug-of-war game against competing classes. and a game was put on by the SSYAA athletes. There was also a round of Chuck-A-Duck.

Senior John Paul Alexandre won the first ever Powder Puff King nomination, and his favorite part about this event is the halftime performance they put on.  

“I hate counting so the rhythm part was a little difficult but the jumps, easy,” said Alexandre.

The rain did not stop the girls as they ran hard and fought hard for two 20-minute halves, ultimately resulting in a tie.

“It would’ve been nice to win, but I’d rather have a tie,” said Ailey Mann, junior player.
