New Women’s Flag Football Team

By: Caroline Alligood

Lassiter has announced a new sports team coming this fall, a women’s Flag Football team! 

An informational meeting was held on August 19th for anyone interested in joining the team. The first two games of the season will be against region rivals Pope and Walton on October 18th. The times for the games are at 5:30 pm (against Pope) and 7:30 pm (against Walton). These games will be held at home. The season will contain eight games in total with the last two games on November 8th. The team will compete against Pope, Walton, North Cobb, Osborne, Hillgrove, Marietta, Wheeler, and South Cobb this 2021 season.

Julia Allen, a sophomore at Lassiter, is planning on joining the team this fall and said, “I first heard about the team in July. My friend’s mom said we need to have a team. I am interested in joining this year because my sister played, and it looks pretty interesting.”  

Participating in extracurricular sports is not only a chance to learn a new sport, but also a great way to meet new people. As Julia noted, “I am excited to make new friends and to play a new sport.” Best of luck to the flag football team this year and go Trojans!
