With the championship game victory over Berkshire, Kirtland has won three Northeast Ohio Girls Flag Football Titles under the leadership of Head Coach Tiger LaVerde.

Clearly, the sport of Flag Football is gaining popularity as 11 states have now sanctioned Girls Varsity Flag Football.

In addition, Flag Football will be an Olympic sport in the 2028 Olympics.
