Hamilton Girls Football


Miranda Rothchild

  A team started only three years ago is looking to make girls flag football an actual sport across the district. The Hamilton girls flag football team only plays two games their whole season. Even though it is disappointing to have only two games their whole season, they plan on making it a good one. With hopes of an undefeated season.

  Team captain, Lyric Pote (12), has been on the team since it started up three years ago. By now she hoped that more games would be played. Lyric says, “we are trying to get ourselves a sanctioned sport; we are only a club at the moment.” Their first game will be on the 27th of April against Casteel. Before the game the team will be holding a tailgate party at 5-7pm. There will be a cornhole tournament, prizes and raffles, food specials by Ginger Monkey, Black Rock drinks, and dj sounds. As well as their last game against Desert Ridge that has yet to be scheduled. Another team player, Hannah Niemi (12), says, “Yes it’s pretty frustrating now, but I realize it’s an upcoming sport with a lot of potential. Hopefully as the club progresses and years go on, more game will be added.” Even though most of these girls are seniors they hope that in the future years girls football can become a sanctioned sport to upcoming players. Brianna Finucane (12) explains the season so far, “we all have been practicing every hard and even though we don’t play many games we want to make the ones we play count. We all are hoping to have an undefeated season.” Hopefully the girls husky football team can win both of their games of the season, to show how badly they want it to become a sanctioned sport.
