Powder Puff Football

Undergrad women take the field during Homecoming weekend for a highly competitive football tournament.


During Homecoming weekend, the women of Wheaton College take the field in the annual Powder Puff tournament in pursuit of the coveted championship t-shirt. In this two game tournament, each class fields a team with 25 women. As a traditionally male-dominated sport, these young women play with all heart as they learn to block, run routes, throw a spiral, catch passes and showing our community just how tough they are. Within the tournament, classes compete against each other in two games. With a win in the first round they move on the championship game which takes place on McCully Field under the lights.
