Girls Go All In For S Club

In a complete gender switch, girls supporting S Club at Lake Havasu High School took the field Tuesday night in a Powder Puff football game. And boys acted as cheerleaders to support the rival black and pink teams.

The black team was made up of sophomore and junior girls, while the pink team players were freshmen and seniors.

Coaching and refereeing was performed by LHHS Fighting Knight football players.

The game was a fundraiser for the LHHS S Club.

“I’m out here tonight dressed in grace and elegance to cheerlead for S Club, to have the girls go out and play the football game while the boys switch roles,” volunteer Steven Cipres said.  “We’re out here showing our love and sport and we’re out here having fun,” he said.

Powder Puff player Gabby Packer said, “I’m just so proud to be out here with my brothers to win this game and we’re going to put all our effort in this game and win.”

At the end of the game, the scoreboard told the story. The black team won 42-0.
