Saturday, October 9, Kenwood SGA hosted their annual Homecoming  parade ending with a Powderpuff game of upper classmen vs lower classmen. The parade circled the Middlesex area and ended back at Kenwood. Kenwood’s band led the parade, following behind them were the dance team, and various other Kenwood High organizations and clubs. The football team and cheerleaders, cheering everyone on, brought up the end of the parade. Little ones lined up along the parade route could get candy handed out by the parade participants.

After the parade students and spectators filed into the stadium for the annual Powderpuff game. It was a great time for all. Food was free for students at the concession stand, and there was a DJ playing great music. The white team was made up of 9th and 10th graders, while the blue team was made up of 11th and 12th graders. Teams were coached by two varsity football players, Jamal Ashley and Khalil Bailey. Jamal enjoyed experiencing the game he loves from the sidelines as coach. “It was fun teaching the girls how to play football,” shared Jamal.



As the girls played the football, the football  players reversed roles and cheered on their classmates. The underclassmen team cheerleaders must have had a little more spirit because they took the win with a score of 28 – 14. Between Spirit week and Homecoming festivities with the football wins, parade, and powderpuff games it was a great week celebrating Kenwood.
