Thomasville High School girls will kick off their second annual Power Puff game at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Thursday, April 19 at 7:00 p.m.
The game will be between the 10th and 11th graders vs the 9th and 12th graders.
Peer Leadership will be hosting the event to raise proceeds that will fund the Peer Leadership class so that they can fund other events and awareness projects. They chose this type of event to promote the girls-only sport, and it also gets the students involved in intramural sports.
The game will consist of two, twenty minute halves with a continuous clock, in addition to a fifteen minute half-time break.
“I like the fact that the halves are only 20 minutes each so that the game isn’t long and dragged out because we’re are playing for fun” said senior Elli Stone.
There will also be a halftime event consisting of “A Minute to Win It” competition and also a relay race with a prize for the winners.
People will also be able to purchase t-shirts during the game and enjoy food and drinks from a concession stand, hosted by HOSA.
“I feel like playing the 11th graders would be a good competition for the seniors,” said senior Morgan Matthews.
The buzz around the school comes with a majority vote that the seniors will beat the juniors, but that doesn’t deter the juniors.
Claudia White is ready to “kick some senior butt,” and Latatyana Hadley knows you “can't keep real ones down.”
Senior Jenna Long really enjoys football and always wished she could play.
“I want to show off my quarterback skills and show that not only boys can play football,” said Long.
