Congratulations to all of Walt Whitman’s participants in last Friday night’s Powder Puff game. Every year, this event is one of the best-attended evenings that typically takes place right around homecoming, yet with this year’s calendar disrupted by the coronavirus, we were grateful to still hold the annual event before the conclusion of the school year.
The halftime show was definitely something you don’t see every day. With colorful wigs and pressed on nails, the junior and senior boys took to the field, tutus and all, to give everyone in attendance some much loved entertainment. While the senior cheerleaders outnumbered the juniors in the cheerleading competition, the secret panel of judges gave the winning title to the junior underdogs. The game was equally entertaining, leaving spectators on the edge of their seats all throughout. Within the final minutes of the 4th quarter, the seniors made a valiant come back to finish the game in a 30 - 30 tie. The evening really proved to be a win for all!
Thank you to our high school administration, Mr. Graziano, Ms. Hirsch-Backman, Mr. Milazzo, and all the advisors and chaperones for making the evening such a great success. The energy both on the field and in the stands was telling of how excited everyone was to be a part of this always fun tradition, and we are so grateful to everyone who helped make it happen!
