Powderpuff Festivities Entertain The Crowd

By Molly Seales

On homecoming eve, Thursday, September 9, the student body of Riverdale Academy carried on the tradition of the Powderpuff Football Game and Powderpuff Homecoming Court.  The “court” was presented at 6:30 p.m., followed by the game.  This year’s Powderpuff Court included the following:  freshman “maid” Kaidyn Williams, who was escorted by Lilly Guillot; sophomore “maid” Kyle Guillory, who was escorted by Emily Cason; junior “maid” Thad Bates, who was escorted by Molly Seales; senior “maid” Chandler Nettles, who was escorted by Rylee Hodge; football “sweetheart” Denver Williams, who was escorted by Renee Prosperie, and the 2021 Powder Puff Queen Monroe McCarty, who was escorted by Kenley Loftin.

Following the presentation of the court, the football game began.  This year the red team consisted of the freshman and senior girls, while the white team consisted of the sophomore and junior girls. The red team came ready to play as senior Rylee Kate Woodard scored a long touchdown on the first play of the game.  Kenley Loftin caught the ball for the 2 point conversion, making the score 8-0 early.  Woodard scored another touchdown, and Loftin gained another 2 points on the conversion, making the score 16-0. Late in the second half, sophomore Sky McMullan broke loose from the defenders to score a touchdown for the white team.  Emma Clemons caught the pass for the 2 point conversion to make the score 16-8.  Late in the second half senior Renee Prosperie found and opening and scored a touchdown in her final powder puff game.  This ended the game, with the red team winning by a score of 22-8.

Halftime entertainment was provided by the cheerleaders and dance line, who were guys from grades 9-12.  As always, they put on a great show!

This is always a fun night for the students and fans of Riverdale!  It’s safe to say that everyone had a great time!
