Calvary having serious fun in inaugural girls flag football season

Calvary Day quarterback Hannah Cail runs around left end during a flag football game against host Richmond Hill during a doubleheader earlier this season at Henderson Park. CDS won the first game 16-0, and the Wildcats claimed the second game 7-6.

The only football experience that members of the new Calvary Day girls flag football team had before this season was from the annual powder puff game played between classes each year.

But with the GHSA introducing girls flag football as an official sport this school year, complete with competition for a state championship, the game has become a focal point in the Cavaliers’ athletic program.

Athletic director Chad Griffin already coaches the girls and boys soccer teams, and he has taken on the duties of leading the flag football squad.

The season is bridging that of fall and winter sports, and athletes from other sports taking on the challenge of flag football.

“The great thing about this group is we have girls that have come out after cross country season ended, and basketball players who are practicing for both sports at the same time,” Griffin said. “We’ve got soccer players, too, and all of them have embraced it and come out to compete.”
