Warren County High School girls basketball coach Erick Baird has been pushing for a powder-puff football fundraiser since arriving in Warren County and this year he finally got to have one.
The Lady Pioneer basketball team raised $1,000 on Tuesday night with powder-puff football games featuring girls from Warren County High School.
The competition featured four teams broken down by classes. There were three flag football games: two semifinal contests and a championship game.
In the semifinals, the senior class faced the freshmen and the juniors took on the sophmores.
The seniors scored an easy victory over the freshmen, winning 21-0. Lauren Wilkinson rushed for two touchdowns as her speed kept the defense from pulling her flags.
The second game was a much closer contest. Playing two 20-minute halves, the sophomores and juniors couldn’t finish the game in regulation.
The sophomores broke a 12-12 tie in overtime when Camerie Martin streaked down the home sideline for the game-winning touchdown. The long TD run set up a championship match against the seniors for the sophomores.
Before the championship game, members of the Warren County High School football team came out and performed dressed as cheerleaders to fire up the crowd. Senior Cory Prince led the C-squad cheerleaders.
Following the brief intermission, the seniors used an attacking defense to claim the championship.
Senior basketball player Bree Smith won Most Valuable Player after intercepting two passes in the championship and returning both for touchdowns to give the seniors a 12-0 victory.
Overall, the night was a great success as all the players had a great time and the basketball team was able to raise money for the program.
Coach Baird was thankful for all those who came out and supported the event and hopes to make the game an annual tradition.
“The Lady Pioneer basketball team would like to thank all those who came out to support the basketball program,” said Baird. “Also they would like to give a special thanks to the C-squad cheerleaders on their excellent performance last night.
“We want to see everybody next year as we crown a new champ.”
