Powderpuff Party: Class of 2023 remains unbeaten

This year Enochs had its annual Powderpuff game after the football season. Powderpuff is where the girls play football and the boys are the cheerleaders. This year it was a clash between the Junior class of 2024 and the Senior class of 2023. This year was a bit different from years in the past as the practices for Powderpuff were at 7:15 in the morning which discouraged many people as some people did not do Powderpuff solely because of the morning practices. There were a total of 5 practices each lasting an hour. Most days out of the 5 days of practice it was pouring rain in the morning so the girls had to practice football in the gym and the boys had to practice their dance in the dance room. But after the last practice Wednesday morning the players were ready to play the game.
