The senior girls joined forces with the freshman to take on the juniors and sophomores in the first Powderpuff football game at High Tech on Thursday, November 2nd. The senior/freshman team prevailed in a close game by the score of 30-20.
The seniors rode the throwing arm of Emma Vasen. Emma had a plethora of receivers to work with. She connected with Calli Sabaitis, Rita Vought, and Ana Brendel. On defense, the seniors were led by the ferocious Lori Zhang. Alisa Lai had two interceptions and almost had a pick six but she was forced out of bounds at the 2-yard line.
The juniors were led by quarterback Anjali Chakradhar. The juniors used a punishing ground game behind the deft running of Lucia Tian and Emily Liu. On defense, Laura Futamura was tenacious and even sacked the senior quarterback for a safety.
The High Tech dance team, under the direction of Ms. Babbin, got the festivities started by performing one of their numbers. Each of the four classes also had their own cheerleaders perform a routine at halftime. The cheerleaders stole the show and the judges narrowly awarded the senior squad first place ahead of the juniors.
