Juniors and Seniors Battle It Out In Powderpuff ’24

Rebecca Margolin

After a successful spirit week and a wonderful season of training, all students came together to celebrate the school’s long-awaited tradition, Powderpuff.
“I wanted to be involved in something that everyone was a part of and everyone goes to,” junior Riya Mistry said.
This year’s Powderpuff will be held at Calabasas High School, April 26, and will be the perfect end to another fun spirit week revolving around such a vital school event.
“Powderpuff has always been one of our biggest events and I think it is the most fun to participate in,” junior Nimran Singh said.
The spirit week will last from April 22 to April 26 and consist of interactive and fan-favorite events like Minion Monday, Tropical Tuesday, Greek Life Thursday and Blue and White Friday. On Friday, students wear blue to support the senior team and white to support the juniors.
“I feel really excited because the team has really been working together,” junior Lauren Gilder said. “We’ve done a lot of team bonding and I think that if we can do what we did at practice, we’ll be okay.”
Players as well as coaches and cheerleaders have practiced lengthy hours, while impatiently waiting for the big day to arrive. Due to the lack of a real football field and the inclement weather the teams have been working extra hard to make sure they are ready.
“We have practice twice a week but since it’s been raining on our practice days, we’ve had one practice on the weekend and we only practice Monday-Wednesday,” senior Tarryn Macias said.
Powderpuff is an annual tradition that all students and staff look forward to each year and spend days preparing for the event. After the initial date was pushed back four days due to scheduling conflicts, players as well as everyone participating were relieved to receive additional practice days.
“I thought I was ready but I realized I wasn’t. I’m happy that we pushed it four days back so now I feel like I’m ready and I’m ready to play,” Macias said.
The whole school will come together to support our junior and senior players in this fun, school event.
“I’m really excited to see how it turns out,” Singh said. “But no matter what, I know I’ll have fun.”
