Hastings High School's powderpuff games proved to be a success last Wednesday.

Thanks to a small entrance fee and leftover funds from T-shirt sales for the players, the event raised more than $1,600 for Hastings Family Service.

Senior Hannah Hoffman organized the event, a series of flag football games for the girls, to help celebrate homecoming. Teams were divided by class, and the girls played two half-field games.

Seniors played against the juniors while freshmen faced off against the sophomores. The first two games were played simultaneously.

In the first round, the juniors defeated the seniors and the freshmen beat the sophomores. Juniors and freshmen went on to play a championship game, which the juniors won. The seniors defeated the freshmen in a consolation game.
