One of Loyola’s most popular Fall events used to be the women’s intramural Powder Puff game, sometimes called the Pumpkin Bowl. The competing teams were the freshmen/senior Hell Kats and the sophomore/junior Heavenly Scents, and the coaches were male Loyola students or, sometimes, Saints players. “King Puff” and his court were crowned at halftime. Unfortunately interest in the game, which at one time drew 2500 fans to Audubon Park, waned in the 1970s and the tradition ceased.
