Annual Powder Puff Game at St. Agnes Academy: Seniors Win Again
It seems like the time came by so fast - the class of 2016 is finally leaving St. Agnes and heading to further their education in the colleges and universities of their choice. But first, they had to participate in the annual junior versus senior class powder puff game.
Originally the Powder Puff game was postponed because of the Houston flooding and storms, but it seemed to be perfect to hold the Powder Puff game during the seniors' last week of classes. All week long, everyone has been talking about and looking forward to this game, and as you walked through the hallways, you could feel the anxiousness and excitement for the game that was to come. You could tell who was playing in the game because each class was wearing their corresponding grade t-shirt.
As May marks the end of the school year, the Powder Puff game marks the last event that the senior class will do together until graduation on May 22. Everyone had their predictions of who was going to win the game but ultimately… the class of 2016 annihilated their opponents making them a 2-peat, meaning that this is their second year in a row this class has beat their opponents.
Though the juniors played a tough team, it wasn’t enough to beat the senior class. Both sidelines were occupied with what were called, Scream Teams. They were similar to the cheerleaders at regular football games. Evangeline Carson, who recently was named "Most Spirited" was seen to be running up and down the sidelines cheering everyone on.
Though Tiger Girls usually make their own appearance at sporting events, we decided to switch it up and have what we call "Tiger Boys." They were composed of the senior boys at Strake Jesuit, who were directed by Kendall Hollingsworth. In order to keep the energy going on the senior side, president of the St. Agnes Spirit Club, Aris Smith kept loud music playing, which of course resulted in everyone hyping each other up, smiling, laughing and, best of all, having a good time. I would say that there was more fun and dancing than actually paying attention to the game but that’s okay, because this is just one more thing that the seniors can add to their favorite memories of high school.
As underclassmen, we don’t know how hard or how easy it will be to let this wonderful class of girls go. But it has to be done. The graduating class of 2016 is a class that can never be replaced nor topped. And the teachers, faculty, staff and students cannot wait to see these seniors turn their tassels and throw their caps.
