Mr. Flynn, who is new to SBHS this year, was excited about all of the spirit that the Powder Puff game would bring, as were the students.

“I think that it is a good idea to bring the game back, it was enjoyed so much in previous years,” senior Kiera Brice said.

Most other students agreed.

“I’m excited to finally be able to participate in this and be able to prove that this activity is something fun and not dangerous,” senior Erika Mendoza said.

Many students were eager to prove themselves responsible and also have fun at the same time.

In a surprising turn of events, the seniors took a loss at the game.

The score was 28 seniors, 42 juniors.

Many people were expecting the seniors to take home the win as they were the team that was so hyped up about the game.

The juniors however took the game by surprise and won over the title of Powder Puff champions for this school year.

Overall the Powder Puff game was a success in bringing together the school for the great cause of breast cancer awareness.

School spirit was also very apparent as the student section was filled with fans and supporters of the school.

The game was played on Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m. on the football field at SBHS.
