Juniors win annual powder puff game
The Floresville class of 2012 powder puff football team celebrates its 42-26 win over the seniors May 25 at Eschenburg Field.
FLORESVILLE -- The class of 2011 enjoyed a big win over the class of 2010 one year ago, but when they took on the class of 2012 in a powder puff football game at Eschenburg Field May 25, the results were a little different.
In the ranks of powder puff football, the Floresville High School senior class of 2011 will end with a 1-1 record. They won big by the score of 31-19 last year, but fell to this year’s junior squad by the score of 42-26 last week.
The annual event was held to raise money for Floresville High School’s Project Graduation, and featured female representatives of this year’s senior and junior classes competing in a flag football game for little more than bragging rights.
Quarterback Dana Guerra did her best to guide the seniors to victory, as she received help from the entire team. Katie Stepke, Kalyn Sisti, Katie Moore, Ashleigh Reyes, and Victoria Arredondo were noted for their big plays throughout the contest.
Brittany Aikens was under center to lead the junior squad to victory. She received a great deal of help from Jennifer Mahula, Erica “Goose” Hernandez, and Samantha Saucedo.
In terms of the halftime show, it was the seniors who earned the win, as Dual Harroff led the senior dance team to victory.
This year’s powder puff game was attended by more than 500 people, and raised more than $3,000 for Project Graduation. Each year, Project Graduation provides graduating seniors with a safe, drug- and alcohol-free environment to celebrate their achievement.
