<b>Powder Puff powerhouses...</b><br>
Sophomore Auburn Jackman (52) tries to run past senior Cassidy Turner during Grand County High School’s annual Powder Puff flag football games on Monday, Sept. 13. The senior girls eventually came from behind to outlast the sophomores in a close contest, 15-13, after which they defeated the juniors in the title game. Meanwhile, the freshmen defeated the sophomores in their consolation game. The Powder Puff event kicked off a week full of fall homecoming festivities at GCHS this week, which will culminate in a school-wide assembly at noon on Friday, Sept. 16, followed by a parade down Main Street that afternoon starting at 3 p.m., and the homecoming football game vs. South Sevier that evening at 7 p.m. For a full schedule, see The Times-Independent’s special homecoming section.
