It was so fun with all the yellow smoke around us, I felt like all of us girls were just one close team,” senior Isabella Montez said.

  • The juniors warm up to get ready for the big game. “I felt super excited and totally locked in, when I was catching passes I was totally focused and super pumped,” Payton Griffin said. “It felt like a big show; with everyone in the stadium I wanted to kinda show my skills and set my mind up to play against the seniors.”

  • Junior Katie Smith kicks the ball for a successful field goal to give the juniors their first three points of the game. “I thought it was really fun because I play soccer, so when Mr. Dell’Orto asked who was going to be the kicker, everyone just looked at me,” Smith said.

  • Senior Sam Fisher coaches Avery Moll in between plays. “It was a great experience being able to teach all the girls all about (football) and see them develop. (They went from) knowing little about the sport to playing on a Friday night under lights,” Fisher said.
