Seniors Bring in the Win

HHS seniors dominated the field once again during the annual Powder Puff game on October 24, bringing the same Hopatcong excitement it initiates each year.

During the first game the senior girls went up against the freshmen girls beating  them 5-0, moving them onto the championship game. Across the field the juniors defeated the sophomore girls, with an ending score of 2-0, also moving them into the championship.

The championship game was a close battle between the upper classmen.  At the last minutes of the game senior, Ashtyn Carpenter scored the winning touchdown leading the senior girls to a victory. Some key players of the senior girls included Mariah Given, Baillee Makosky, Gina Costanza, and Jade Webster.  For the juniors, Amari Schooler, Victoria Gehring, and Barbara Ortiz helped the team put up a good fight.

The sophomores and freshmen had a chance to redeem themselves in their second game of the night. The game ended with a sophomore feat over the freshmen with a final score of 3-0. Sophomore  players who contributed to the victory include Breea Boylan, Shelby Spaziani, and Cate Pisano. Freshmen key players included Franchesca Pizarro, Brelyn Cusano, and Alexa Yanko.

Carrying on the tradition, the senior boys performed their half time routine— routine that included stunts, flips, and a choreographed dance. It was definitely a performance worth seeing.

“You could really tell how much work they put into their routine, and how much fun they were having while doing it. It makes me excited for my senior year,” said Spaziani.

Powder Puff generates a spirit that not only shows on the field, but is carried throughout the entire day. The players and coaches wore designed T-shirts or “uniforms” during the school day, to show off their class pride. The hallways were flooded with colors and school spirit.

Each year, after the Powder Puff game, the excitement simmers down, but is never truly gone; it is simply building up for next year

Good work, girls!
