The annual tradition raises money for Project Graduation
WASHINGTON TWP. -- The junior and senior classes at Washington Township High School took part in an annual tradition Tuesday night: Powder Puff football.
Approximately 200 senior-class girls and 215 junior-class girls battled it out in a game of flag football in the bitter cold.
The senior class girls won the game, 40-22, under the lights at Tom Brown Field.
The boys of the junior and senior classes had their chance to shine on the field as well. More than 100 boys from each class performed cheerleading routines -- including some choreographed dance elements and being tossed into the air -- during a halftime show.
The event raises funds for Project Graduation, an all-night, drug- and alcohol-free celebration for graduates on graduation night.
Washington Township schools Superintendent Joe Bollendorf called the game from the booth. Officiating the game were Emil Aquino, Ed Beeler, Charlie Doud, Chuck Huff, Mike Mullin and Dave Paul.
