It was another game filled with sweat, determination, and domination: a game played with heart. Not only do our football boys rock the field, but our girls are no different. Playing in our annual powderpuff game, the girls went head on with the girls of our rival, Golden West. Held at home, the field was covered in bright yellow and green, but it was the green that was plowing over the opponent. With an end score of 38-16, our Lady Miners’ hard work was proudly shown, for the scoreboard does not lie. With countless practices after school, they worked with their coaches, who are senior football players. These coaches even wore the proper attire of tan pants, white button-ups, and ties to show that they were in fact the coaches. Along with the coaches, other senior and junior boys were cheering the girls on for the whole game and gave the crowd a laugh with their halftime show. They put just as much effort into this event with their flawless routines and full attire of cheer uniforms. And last but certainly not least, our water girl, Rylee Champlin endured the heat to pour the team water for the whole team. She says, “I wanted to be a part of the team, but not really be a part of the team so to feel a part of the team I decided to be the hydrator for the girls…to be a part of the team. Plus, I got a really cool shirt.” But the ones who kept the team going with their skills and leadership, were Nicole Donald and Sydney Stephenson as the MVPs and Ally Ford receiving the Coach’s Award. Every student involved put time, exertion, and heart to make this year as amazing as the others. Mitchell Boswell, the coordinator of the 2012 Powderpuff game says, “He is so glad to see that everything turned out great. It was fun to watch our girls smash Golden West once again!” This year was filled with perseverance, fun, and victory, and we hope to repeat it in the coming years.
