Though the football season is coming to an end, once again WHS brings back the original tradition of the “Powder Puff” game at the WHS football field on Tuesday, November 5th at 5:00 pm. Who says girls can’t play football?

“We’re trying to bring back the original tradition of junior girls vs. senior girls,” said Regina Stelma. To bring more spirit, they decided to bring it back around the time of homecoming festivities this year.

Instead of tickets being sold, canned foods were collected for the Glade Valley Food Bank. Students got in with two dollars or two canned foods and all proceeds will benefit the Glade Valley food bank. “We want to help our community,” said Stelma. Some of the participants of the game share their thoughts and excitement of the event.

“Well I love sports and to support my class so I’m very excited, we’re gonna try to improve off of last year’s performance,” said junior, Danielle Haggerty.

With her first year playing, senior Leah Allnutt feels it’s going to be an awesome addition to her senior year. “I love football and thought it would be a fun thing to do my senior year,” said Allnut.

Senior, Tess Laffer has the same feelings as Allnutt. With it being her first year as well. “I’ve never done it before and I think it would be cool,” said Laffer.

Junior, Kiyan Sheraz has stepped up and put himself as a cheerleader for the junior girls team. “I’m ready to go! I’m ready to show some cheerleading moves and go hard,” said Sheraz.

With his second year of coaching, junior, Mark Ray has no doubt that his junior class will lead to victory. “Yes of course! Because we got Walkersville pride,” said Ray.

Allnutt and Laffer also shared their strong opinions of their senior girls being the ones who bring the victory. “We definitely have the most athletic girls in our class,” said Laffer.

“Oh yeah we have a lot of athletic girls in our grade, I think we’re gonna crush,”  said Allnutt.
