A new record has been set for girls’ powderpuff football game.

For the first time in school history, the juniors have beat the seniors.

Junior Reilly Verduin said, “The best part of the night was definitely breaking the school record for being the first junior team to ever beat the senior team. Everyone was pretty surprised and not expecting it, especially because we won by a couple of touchdowns.”

Athletic Director Ryan Portenga confirmed that this was the first time the juniors have beaten the seniors.

The seniors went 1-1, losing to the juniors and beating the sophomores. The juniors were the only team to go 2-0, beating the seniors and freshmen.The sophomores went 0-2, losing to the freshmen and seniors. And the freshmen went 1-1, beating the sophomores and losing to the juniors.  

The main part of the night that many enjoyed was being to be able to connect with the other girls in their grade and being coached by some of the varsity football players.

“It’s really nice to learn new things from actual people who play football from all the coaches who teach you real plays,” Verduin said. “Like if you actually watch football and you go to the games on Friday nights, then you can know the exact play that they are running. It’s just cool to know the plays because we like did them ourselves. It was also really cool to be able to connect to people in my grade.”

Freshman Brooke Leroux had the same feelings as Verduin.

Leroux said, “It was really fun. I originally thought it wasn’t going to be that fun, and I wasn’t expecting a lot, but it was really fun because everyone was involved together.”

It seemed as though the girls had fun, and some said this should happen more than once a school year.

Sophomore Jaiden Warren said, “I thought it was fun and that we should definitely do it more often and have it more than once a year.”
