Nov. 29, 2017:  Bronxville School junior and senior girls took to the football field on Saturday, November 18, for the second annual powder-puff football game, which is a lively game of flag football.

This event was created by the Bronxville High School Youth Council to build school spirit and camaraderie among classmates. The junior and senior girls came out ready to play against each other in team jerseys and face paint.


Each team was coached by a staff of male classmates who worked hard to help them learn and execute plays. The student announcers for the game were Colin McCloskey and Eddie ConnorsDavid Russert, the Bronxville Youth Council faculty advisor, served as the head referee and was assisted by Mac Crawford and Jack McSherry.

The seniors took the crown this year, winning by a touchdown.
