Powder Puff:’18 defeats ‘19

by: Emma Caufield

The year was 1945 and World War II had just come to an end. Due to the wartime draft, only three male students were enrolled at Eastern State Teacher’s College in Madison, South Dakota.
Unfortunately, the low population of male students led to to the cancellation of all Homecoming weekend sporting events. Female students took a stand and decided they would play in the place of the boys and thus, Powder Puff was born.
Last year was the first year in many that ELHS had held a Powder Puff game. The game was very popular, so they decided to continue the tradition this year. The game was held Nov. 21 and all proceeds went to the senior class. The Class of 2018 won with a score of 29 – 22.
