Trick or Tailgating
WCTA Student Council hosted a unique spin on the traditional Powder Puff tailgate. Adding a trunk or treat to fit this year’s homecoming theme, the annual tailgate had an array of trucks and other cars decorated with spooky decorations, dangling orange and purple lights, and overflowing candies.
Before the Powder Puff game, the tailgate was in full swing as clubs prepared their trunks for the Trunk or Treat. Students and staff were given bags to get their candy in and tickets used to vote for the best-decorated trunks.
At the same time, students participating in the Powder Puff game awaited the finals to see which class would become victorious. While last year’s winners were the senior class of 2016, the juniors claimed the title of Powder Puff champions, beating out the freshmen 14-0.
“Winning the powderpuff championship was very pleasing because we had fun, and we came together in unison to win against the other teams,” said Alex Morgan, junior, “This is my third year doing powderpuff for WCTA, and it gets better and more competitive every year.”
After the game, students and staff were able to kick back and enjoy a rather sunny day outside while chowing down on hot dogs and cotton candy. The freshman were especially having a good time, getting a taste of what WCTA’s homecoming tailgate is all about.
“I had at a great time at the tailgate with my friends, especially since it was my first one,” says Jerome Mallari, freshman, “I’m definitely looking forward to next year, and I really hope it will be just as fun!”
A special thanks to StuCo for putting the extra effort into this year’s tailgate and making it just as great, if not better, than those of the past.
