The girls at Conneaut High School had the chance to demonstrate their football ability while the guys were able to showcase their cheerleading talents. Each year after Homecoming, the girls sign up to participate in a powder puff football game which serves as a fund-raiser for the 2013 prom. The game took place at the SPARK Stadium on Oct. 20. Each girl wore a set of flags; if her flag was ripped off, she was considered tackled. The game schedule went as follows: seniors versus freshmen, juniors versus sophomores, then seniors versus juniors. The seniors knocked down the freshmen with a score of 46-0.The juniors then kept the upperclassmen vibe going and defeated the sophomores 16-6.
“It was nice for the girls to get out and show what they got, showing the guys that we can do it just as good as they can,” said junior quarterback Brooke Bennett. Seniors were able to take home the championship with a 12-0 win over the juniors.
Cheerleading was no problem for a couple of the junior boys. Kyle Sprinkle, Mikey Teed, Dylan Moricci, Dillon Griswold and freshman Sean O’Meara were in charge of the halftime show during the game. Brian Duris took on two responsibilities; he was not only the sophomore cheerleader, but also the sophomore coach as well. The boys had pompoms and even took a few lessons from the actual cheerleaders before the game. Overall, the event was very successful and gave the students an opportunity to show off everything they had either on the field or on the sidelines.
