Amador’s Powderpuff team regroups after the exciting game.

On Saturday, April 20th, Amador hosted their annual Powderpuff game against their cross-town rivals. The game is held every April to raise money for the HERS Breast Cancer Foundation. The two schools switch off hosting each year, with this year’s game being held at Amador.

“We started planning this thing in March. We were scheduling, getting the fliers approved, and then starting to get the interest of the athletes. We also met with foothill multiple times over zoom and planned it,” said Dwight Pratt, Coordinator of Operations. “For the most part everything went really well… there was great sportsmanship and it was all for a good cause. That’s why we do what we do. It is to make great memories for you guys… and also in this case, raising money for a good cause, the HERS Foundation,” said Pratt.

Representatives from leadership of both Amador and Foothill joined in on the effort to make this game a success.

“So me and my co-planner Bella [Vollgraf] represented the Amador half of the Powderpuff planning committee, [and] we worked closely with Foothill. Amador had to make sure the facilities were booked, and make sure our team was ready to play,” said Katherine Covert (‘25).

With so many people coming out to support, this year’s Powderpuff game was a success, a large sum of donations and support being raised for the HERS Breast Cancer Foundation. 

“Overall I just thought it was a great night. There was a good croud, and so all in all, it was a great night. Seeing teachers there, and the administration from both schools were represented. And it was great to see all of those people out there for a fun night,” said Pratt.
