The game plan for the BIG game is just about complete. Both teams are practicing, one open to the public and the other at an undisclosed location. To the players last year's game is not lost in their memory it is still etched in their minds. Both players and coaches are nervous about making any bold statements, but as Wednesday approaches, YES Wednesday not Thursday; I am sorry we are talking about the GHS Junior – Senior Girls Powder Puff Game not the Rams – Lions Football Game.  

The daring Junior Class is the confident team coming in. They have invited the Senior Team to watch their pre-game preparation while the senior's have been unwilling to reveal their game plan. Last year's star now a Senior Leanna Wiley proclaimed a win over the inexperienced junior class by 8 points while fellow Senior Britney Boulden feels as though it will be a sleeper with a 14 point win.

The new junior team will be led by quarterback Tabatha Dick. Look for the juniors to open this game up early with the speedy Erin Mac Adams and Jean Marie Wiley. At the Sunday afternoon press conference Mac Adams predicted that Ghs_powder_puff_practice_2007_021 if the senior's are lucky we will be nice and win by only 14. Junior wide out Wiley claims she will not be out done by her senior sister Leanna predicts a 2 touchdown win.

On Wednesday evening at the GHS field both teams will battle it out for the bragging rights. The halftime entertainment will be by the ALL MALE cheerleading squads by both the Junior & Senior class. This battle may be closer then the football game. These men have been working hard on their Pom-Pom routine. Expect the unexpected! These boys will tumble, split and build pyramids in the battle of the cheerleaders.

This game is a senior class fundraiser and the cost of admission for the 7:00 pm game is $1.00. Junior Marissa Cooper warns "it won't even be close. Get your hot dogs and hot chocolate early because it will be a long night for the seniors".
