The Annual Powder Puff Game was held on Friday, May 4th at Greyhound Field. Coach Jon Bradley led the Purple Team and Coach Ben Reynolds led the Pink Team. The girls practiced twice with their coaches during the week and were ready to compete on Friday. Coach Reynolds was the coach of the winning team last year and was determined to stay the champion. The pink team won the game again this season.
What is a team sport without a cheer squad? Each team was accompanied by cheerleaders who stole the show at moments. The event was a fundraiser for the NHS Varsity Cheerleaders. HOSA held the concession stand as an additional fundraiser. “We love having this annual event before the Orange/Black Spring Game each season,” states Cheer Coach Brittany Long. The number of fans in attendance continues to grow.

Pink Team Cheerleaders included John Washington, Hunter Shelton, Clemmie Alcorn, Gavin Tarwater, Jerry Ellis, Luke Samaniego, Abraham Gomez, and Tydrell Friar. The Purple Team players included Jakayla Dixson, Savannah Scudamore, Loren Ratton, Sydney Davis, Jessica Allen, Anna Jackson and Emma Jackson.
