With homecoming drawing near, Powder Puff is the most anticipated event for the week filled with activities. Powderpuff is a homecoming sport where boys and girls switch roles for an evening to play flag football and cheer. Juniors and Seniors begin practicing for one of the most iconic sports played during high school. Students began signing up a few weeks ago, trying to get a spot on Kimball 2016 Powder Puff team. Aside from what will be sees on the field Monday night of homecoming, there are many different aspects that go into preparing for such an event.

This year a set of male cheerleaders shed some light on how practice is going. “It’s definitely hard learning the routines, we’re learning everything,” seniors Donald Madsen, Louis Paulite and Denzel Bautista agreed.

Many of the boys were motivated to participate in Powder Puff because they’re seniors and it’s a part of the high school experience. This also applies to the female players on the field. Tabitha Bartolome, a senior, talked about how Powder Puff is a uncommon sport that you only get to experience once.

This once a year game also permits friendly sister rivalry among younger and older siblings. Sisters Meghan and Macey Rio spoke of how their relationship off the field will affect the way they play on the field. “I’m going to try to tackle her. I really hope the Juniors win this year because I want to rub it in her face that we won,” Junior, Meghan stated.

Most of the players are hoping for a good turnout for this years game. Come support the upperclassmen girls play and the boys cheer on Oct. 10.
