Annual WTHS Powder Puff Football Game Scheduled for November 20th

powder puff The 2018 Washington Township High School Powder Puff Game will take place on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, at 6 p.m. under the lights at the school’s Tom Brown Field. The spirited tradition that pits approximately 250 junior class girls against 250 senior class girls in a competitive game of flag football proves annually to be quite the spectacle, attracting hundreds of competitors and spectators alike. In the ultimate role reversal, approximately 100 junior and senior class boys embrace their role of cheerleaders, dressing the part and performing cheers and routines throughout the event. 


WTHS teacher John Basile will serve as head coach of the senior class team.  Assistant coaches will include Natalie Taylor, Deanna Ettore, Shannon Molloy, Shaun Giberson, Jamie Oliver, Josh Hanlon, Tanya Dargusch and Alex Ackley.  Teacher Alicia Boncardo will lead the junior class squad with the assistance of her colleagues Marc Boncardo, Ryan Francisco, Michael Wong, Kaitlyn Filipiak, Heather Cicero, April Renzetti and Matt Groark.


The event raises funds for the school’s Project Graduation, an all-night, drug-and alcohol-free celebration that offers a safe alternative for graduates on graduation night.


Fireworks, that were funded by Turnersville Auto Mall and postponed at Homecoming by inclement weather, will conclude the evening.


Admission to the Powder Puff game is $3.
