Vangala crowned homecoming king
Juniors prevail in Powderpuff championship
October 5, 2017
Stratford held its annual powderpuff games and crowned its homecoming king on Wednesday night.
This year’s king is Sahan Vangala.
This is not the best day of my life, but it is maybe the fourth-best day of my life.”
— Sahan Vangala
“This is not the best day of my life, but it is maybe the fourth-best day of my life,” Sahan said, laughing.
The freshmen played the juniors in the first game. The freshmen had a ’90s theme. The juniors went with a Harley Davidson theme. The juniors won easily in a shutout.
In the second game, the sophomores, dressed as aliens, battled it out against the seniors, who dressed as “senior citizens.” The sophomores won extending the Class of 2018’s losing streak to four years. This year’s seniors have never won a powderpuff game.
In the championship game, the juniors took the lead from the beginning and kept it throughout the game. They easily won by a landslide. Before this year, the juniors had also never won a powderpuff game, but put that streak to an end by winning the championship.
In addition to Sahan, the other senior boys on the homecoming king court were Micheal Hicks, Larson McDaniel, Alex Smith, Tobe Umerah, Cal Whitworth, Sammy Martin and Tyler Jordan.
Griffin Matson was the junior representative, Tomi Sogade was the sophomore representative, and Ben Baxley represented the freshmen.
