Junior Class Rules the Turf

It’s easily one of the best-attended evenings of the year, and from the looks on everyone’s faces, it's easy to see why the annual Powder Puff football game between senior and junior girls is so popular. New principal John Murphy wasted no time in providing lost of laughs as he wholeheartedly embraced this Whitman tradition. Both sides battled back and forth with the juniors having a 38-24 lead at halftime.

The halftime entertainment show was something that you just don’t see every day. While there was, thankfully, no wardrobe malfunctions, just watching our senior boys dressed-up as girls, dancing and prancing while the hundreds of fans and players cheered them on for more, was a sight to behold.  And, to make it all that much more entertaining, the junior boys had their turn in the middle of the field as well. The junior boys stole the show, winning the judges favor.

The second half of action on the football field proved that this is an exceptionally athletic junior class. As time expired the juniors came out on top of a lopsided score of 62-30. Spirit week in South Huntington continues… congratulations Walt Whitman students on a fantastic evening!
