Admission is $1.00 for students; $2.00 for adults; and District 158 employees are free with ID.

What would Homecoming be without the annual Girls’ Powder Puff Football Games? Watch as the freshman girls, coached by Jeff Angle, take on the sophomore girls, coached by Patrick Odarczenko. Then see if the junior girls, coached by Kim Hoffman, can tackle the seniors, coached by Tom Kempf. Both games should provide hours of entertainment And of course, half-time entertainment will be provided by the guy poms.

Come support the girls in their football endeavors and the boys in their dancing dreams!
