Powderpuff is back and LRHS for another year! 

During Homecoming week each fall, every grade participates in a women’s flag football tournament. Powderpuff puts a fun spin on what is usually seen in football; girls now compete while the guys coach and cheer them on. 

This year, the game will be held on October 13.

Powderpuff is one of the fun activities planned during homecoming and some seniors are ready to give it their all for their last year.

Amaya Montague is one of those seniors who has participated in Powderpuff. She recalls freshman year when the 9th graders overcame the seniors. “Of course we won and that’s never happened before. We beat the seniors so that was a pretty fun experience.” 

As a freshman that fall and still adjusting to high school, Montague said they “just built this communal relationship” with other girls on the team.

Because of online learning last year, Powderpuff and most other Homecoming festivities were canceled. Now, Montague is determined to bring home a win for the seniors. 

“It’s game time. They better be coming ready to play because I want to win,” she said confidently.

A virtual meeting was held Wednesday night for all interested in being a part of LRHS Powderpuff.
