Calvary Day girls advance to quarterfinals in flag football playoffs

Coach Chad Griffin revealed one of the Calvary team mottos for this flag football season — “can’t pull, can’t pitch, can’t catch, can’t win.”

Wednesday, the host Cavaliers went down their checklist and made sure the negatives didn’t surface. They pulled (flags), they pitched, they caught and they won — twice.

Calvary defeated Stockbridge 19-6 and Carver 9-0 to begin the GHSA Class A-5A flag football state tournament in the sport’s inaugural season.

The Cavs (5-0-2) advanced to the state quarterfinals against the winner of Harris County-Heritage (Conyers). Heritage is the classification’s No. 1-ranked team in the computer Maxwell Ratings.

“It’s been great to watch the girls learn the game,” Griffin said. “Throughout the games (with Stockbridge and Carver), you could see (quarterback) Hannah Cail and others reading (the defense) and reacting. I think that’s why we’re so successful. We have a bunch of competitive girls who play multiple sports.”

Griffin said seven basketball players and several softball players, volleyball players, cross country runners and cheerleaders are on the 22-person roster.
