Powderpuff game brings classes together, forms memories


On Oct. 27, the Cathedral Prep student council hosted the annual Powderpuff football game between the women of the junior and senior classes at the Hagerty Family Events Center. The game was a great way to build camaraderie, raise money for the Erie Dawn Center for Women, and make some lasting memories.

“I enjoyed participating in my first Powderpuff game,” junior Emily Dudenhoeffer said. “I can’t wait until the game next year where we will be able to hopefully come out with a win.”

The game was overseen and organized by the Prep Student Council, who spent a lot of time and effort making sure that everything ran smoothly.

“The Powderpuff game was originally a Villa tradition,” student council advisor Ms. Mackensen said. “We originally learned about it last year, and we wanted to carry that over through the merger. Normally the game would be on the Friday before Homecoming, but we weren’t able to make that happen this year. We also wanted the girls to play with actual jerseys, so we had to organize with Creative Imprints in order to make that happen in time.”

Some of the proceeds from the game became a donation for the Erie Dawn Center for Women.

“I am personally very glad that we were able to donate to the women’s center,” Ms. Mackensen said. “Representatives were able to be there to receive the check in person. They were also very impressed that the student council board took the initiative to reach out and make something work. I am very happy with the donation and how the event ran as a whole.”

The students who participated in the event also have nothing but positive things to say about the day.

“Powderpuff was a great opportunity for the junior and senior girls,” senior Hayley Dever said. “I am so glad that we were able to have fun, make memories, and raise money for a good cause.”
