Last weekend Powderpuff officially began. This fall college sport started in 1959 when Jones College’s upper class Powders played the freshmen Puffs. The game was a yearly event, until Brown College opened. Then, Brown vs. Jones became the game of the year. As the colleges went co-ed, one game turned into many.
If you are on campus and would like to see more Powderpuff memorabilia, you can stop by the Rice Memorial Center (RMC). There is a display case devoted to this exciting college sport.
