Chatfield High School Wins First-Ever Women’s Flag Football Championship

On this week’s regional sports newscast, Sport’s Talk host Jimmie Searfoss talks about Denver’s Chatfield High School’s historic women’s flag football championship.

Chatfield High School is one of 25 schools selected by the Denver Broncos to take part in a three-year women’s flag football high school pilot program. Across the school that participated, 550 girls signed up. Of those 550 girls, 80 of them came from Chatfield. This comes as interest in women’s flag football picks up speed across the nation. Seven other U.S. states have sanctioned women’s flag football in high school, and Colorado is looking to be the eighth.
