WMHS celebrates first “Powder Tuff” game
By Stephanie Erickson
For the first time in Wayne Memorial history, on March 26th there was a Powder Tuff game, a game of volleyball against male students and teachers. This game was organized by Wayne Memorial student, Amy Hoch ‘15.
“I went to a camp where other schools presented about Powder Tuff and I decided I wanted to do it.” Hoch said.
After getting it approved by administration, Hoch made announcements through the school for male students to pick up permission slips for the game in the main office.
“I really wanted to put on the event, so after I got the administrations approval I was put in charge of the game,” Hoch said.
“This was really fun, I like volley ball and guys don’t really get a chance to play.” Kyle Swindlehurst ’17 said.
The Powder Tuff game consisted of three teams, two student teams and a staff team.
The first game was Teachers vs. Seniors, with the teachers winning.
The second game was Seniors vs. Underclassmen, with the seniors winning.
The third game was Underclassmen vs. Teachers, with the teachers winning again.
The fourth game was Teachers vs. Seniors again, with the teachers winning yet again.
This making the Teachers the champs of Wayne Memorial’s first Powder Tuff game.
“This should be an every year thing, with more participation. It’s really fun, and it supports Relay for Life, which is a great cause.” Tyler Harnos ’15 said.
There are hopes to make this an annual event, like Powder Puff, where the girls play football.
