First Year of Flag Football at Coronado

Players getting ready for the Homecoming Parade in September

Football is one of the most popular sports in the country; however, despite its popularity, Coronado High School did not have flag football team until the summer of this year, when Coach White started training the first group of the players for the upcoming season.
As Coach White says, his main expectation from this season is for the girls to have fun.
So far, the team has been having fun, playing a lot of games such as the game with Elizabeth High School (18-14 on 9/01/23), Lincoln High School (20 – 12 on 9/29/23) and Ellicott High School (12-13 on 9/27/23).
Some player are really excited to develop flag football at Coronado.
Kennah White, Class of 2025, expressed her thoughts, saying, “I would say that the most exciting part about being on the team was just finding connections with other people and building a new sport. Because flag football has not been a huge thing for girls, and we are starting to make it one.”
Vanessa Cortes, Class of 2024, agrees with Kennah saying that “I think, because it is women’s flag football, this season it would become more normalized here … And we would have more people join next year… I do not really have any challenges so far, just balancing school with sports.”
The team had over 15 games this season, and there are only playoff days left, with season ending on October 14. It’s been a great first season and let’s hope that Coronado continues to provide this opportunity for athletes next year.
