Last Monday, Lowry’s students put on an exciting, action-filled Powderpuff game. It was an epic showdown between the freshmen/senior team and the sophomore/junior team that was decided by two points.
While the girls played hard, the Powderpuff cheerleaders were working just as hard to keep the crowd pumped and cheer on the girls. The turnout for the game was incredible, with the stands filled, and the student section packed with some great fans.
“The best part is I get to look ridiculous,” said senior Shane Bell.
Going into the second half, the freshmen/senior team had a comfortable lead, but the sophomore/junior team came back with a bomb thrown by Heather McElvain to Betsy Guerrero to tie the game 20-20. Later, a defensive series by the sophomore/junior team would give them the lead by way of a safety. The seniors and freshmen couldn’t execute with the ball and as soon as the sophomores and juniors got the ball back, they ran the ball, killing the clock.
If you execute, then you win games,” said senior coach Mitch Pollock about his team. All in all, the coaches on both teams were proud of their girls. Junior Madi Gonzalez was named “Player of the Game” by sophomore coach Daniel Pollock.
“It was really fun and everyone played well,” said Madi Gonzalez.
The Homecoming event was a success in that it attracted students from all around the school to come together, show their school spirit, and cheer on their class. The Powderpuff game was a great way to kick off the Homecoming week.
