“We lose only two seniors from this season’s team, blocker and punter Grace Yoder and defensive back Gracie McWhorter who had four interceptions for us,” Townsend noted.

“We were a very young team this year,” he added.

The Lady Lions will return 12 players to the program’s team next season that will be compete in its second season of Georgia High School Association girls flag football.
