On March 14, Park Vista’s girls’ flag football team, lead by captains Diana Dorzeme, Julia Lips and Haley Brownell, officially began their 2017 season. Now, holding a currently undefeated record, the team is looking forward to a successful year.

Tryouts for girls’ flag football began in February; however, conditioning has been active since January. This allowed for the team to achieve its full potential by racking up hours and hours of practice before the team was ever officially assembled.

Their first pre-season game took place on March 7 (at home) where they played against Oxbridge Academy- and won. They went on to play Royal Palm Beach High School for their second pre-season game, where won again. A few days later, they played their first official game against Lake Worth High School.

In addition to gaining working hard during pre-season and official season, the flag football girls also created an amazing team bond that has been instrumental in their success throughout their trails and tribulations within the sport.

“We are a family, and our captains are really great before games and everything to help us come together and win,” said senior Kiana Barbieri (starting rusher on defense for the varsity girl’s flag football team).

In the end, the main goal of the girl’s flag football team is to make it to states and grow stronger as a team. Last year, they lost a playoff game against Seminole Ridge High School by one point (13-12); therefore, this year, the team has a greater drive to make it to states where they hope to win it all.

“We feel like we should have won last year, so we really want it bad this year,” said Barbieri.

As they continue to progress throughout the season, the girl’s flag football team will keep working as hard as they can to be the best at their sport and raise each other up, as a team, to ensure that they make it to states this year.
