Flag football begins at McNary

Senior Lucas Stewart makes his way to the end zone.

The flag football era began at McNary High School with a Jamboree on Saturday, April 6.

Eleven girls and one boy geared up for their games, coached by Tracy Rhoades.

Not yet a sanctioned OSAA sport, flag football drew dozens of teams from throughout Oregon to play in the Jamboree last weekend.

The team has five games scheduled in April, culmanating with a Nike-sponsored event in May.

Team members for the first flag football team are: Ava Castro (senior);  Jaslyn  Austin  Cruz (freshman);  Isabella  Cipolla ( junior);  Amelia  Cherepranov (freshman); Alyssa Christensen ( junior);  SMaranda  Dominick (senior); June Higgins Jenkins (senior); Ali Martinez (senior); Marlina  Martinez  (freshman); Aliya  Olea  (senior);  Araceli Quintero-Alcantar  (freshmen); Lucas  Stewart  (senior);  Maya Waldron  (sophomore),  Tiffany Woods (freshman); Kalece Wynn (sophomore).
