The Catawba Chapter of the American Marketing Association (Cat-AMA) held its inaugural Powderpuff flag-football game on April 24th on the Frock Soccer field. The game was held to raise money for the student club in its efforts to compete in the annual International American Marketing Association competition held each year in New Orleans, La.

In a heated competition, the lowerclassmen (freshmen and sophomores) defeated the upperclassmen (juniors and seniors) in a 45-21 score.

"The powderpuff game sponsored by the Marketing Association was an enjoyable event. Tasty food, friends, laughter and a dazzling trophy. What more could you ask for on a Friday night?" said Victoria Hedrick who played on the lowerclassmen team and scored two touchdowns in the competition.

When asked what they thought about the future, participant Skylar Hathaway stated, "The event was a lot of fun and, can’t wait for next year’s game!" Skylar played on the upperclassmen team and contributed to a sack and interception during the game.

"I am really proud of how the Cat-AMA was able to come together and put on such a great event in such a short period of time. It was a thrill to see participants have so much fun. I look forward to seeing how the event will grow and improve in the years to come," said Cat-AMA President and Catawba freshman Jonathan Gerstl.

The Cat-AMA is a student-run group that emphasizes professional and educational development for students interested in the marketing discipline. Students from a variety of majors including Music, Business, Communication, and others enjoy the collegiate and career environment that the group supports. Meetings are held every Tuesday night beginning at 6:30 p.m. The group invites interested Catawba students to join as well as prospective professional speakers. All inquiries should be sent to Dr. Phillip Frank Assistant Professor of Marketing at Catawba College and Faculty Advisor for the club (pmfrank13@catawba.edu).
