Girls from Lynbrook High School’s Class of 2021 and 2022 recently participated in the school’s annual flag football game at Marion Street School. Hosted by the Lynbrook High School Key Club, the powderpuff game has been a tradition in the Lynbrook community for the past 15 years and this year would be no different.
Coaches and players took the field as their peers cheered them on. Players were charged $5 to get into the game and guests were encouraged to make a donation. As a result, the Key Club was able to raise $702 which was split between both the junior and senior class. At the end of the game, the seniors took home the win with the score of 31-0. Although there were many obstacles to overcome due to the pandemic, with the help of the high school staff and administrators, the day was a success.
“Powderpuff has always been such a great event in our community, and I am extremely grateful we were able to have it,” said Carly Tucker, senior and Key Club Co-President. “Seeing how excited everyone was to have this event, really made this day more special than ever!”
Fellow senior and Key Club Co-President Marti Candel noted that powderpuff is her favorite event of the year.
“The competitive but fun game gets everyone so excited,” she said. “The spirit and happiness is felt by everyone and of course the seniors took home the win because they are epic!”
The Lynbrook High School Key Club looks forward to continuing the powderpuff tradition for years to come.
