During homecoming week, players, coaches, cheerleaders, and fans gathered under the lights of the BSM stadium to honor the yearly tradition of powderpuff football. The energy was high as each team vied for victory, but in the end, the junior class came out on top. However, the senior class managed to win their first powderpuff game, beating the sophomore class.

This win came on the shoulders of some dedicated players. “The seniors’ MVP of the night was, for sure, Megan “Ninja” Cornell. She might be the fastest person I have ever seen, and unlike other team superstars, she doesn’t argue with the refs or complain about playing time. She always listens and was faster and better than most players,” senior Ellie Bahr said.


Going into Powderpuff 2016the juniors had high expectations, but they managed to snag wins over the sophomores and freshmen, securing their first place victory. “[I’m] not going to lie it was a team win since we had almost a completely different defense than an offense. Having Claire Grazzini and Abby Mead on the offensive side of the ball was a major key to the success of our team,” junior coach Braeden Fitzgerald said. 

This talent proved too much to overcome for other teams, and it seems the team will only continue to improve. “All I’ve got to say say is [that] the scoreboard doesn’t lie; we will be back next year to defend our title,” Fitzgerald said.

The freshman and sophomore classes showed promise as well, showcasing talent like sophomores Amanda Cassidy and Kaitlyn McTigue, and freshman Frida Fortier. “Even though we lost, we played two really close games. I think next year we’re winning it all. Don’t sleep on the class of 2019,” sophomore John Whitmore said.
