Kayla Dean, director of Rec Life on SGA executive council, put on a Powderpuff Football game for ENC female students. This event was primarily for girls to come together and have a chance to play football. The game was held on November 17 on Wolly lawn. SGA partnered with Wolly Church to host this event.
There were two teams, the Black team and the Red team. Each team consisted of a mixture of upperclassman, freshman, commuters, and even grad students.
“It was so awesome to see girls that didn’t really know each other come together, talk with one another, and just have fun. I am determined to make Powderpuff Football a tradition at ENC. As women, we felt empowered through the entire game and it was a great way to get our mind off of the stress at the end of the semester!” Junior Madisen Robinson said.
The coaches were Javon Winfield, a sophomore, and Joey Fortin, a freshman. As coaches they explained the game, helped the players with rules, and even hyped up the crowd. There was a great turnout and Dean was thrilled with the results.
“I am looking forward to this event and every event after it! Our student leaders, SGA, SDO, the Athletics Department, and Wolly church are always willing to help and support our events, which is so exciting. The fact that our campus is filled with such energizing people who like competition is such a blessing for me,” Dean said.
Members of Wollaston Church contributed Thanksgiving-themed food that was sold to the participants and spectators. The SGA also sold bright pink t-shirts.
Dean was thrilled to be able to put on this event and hopes to see more events like this next semester!
