Head Coach Sheldon Scott McArthur said, "Due to the start of the High School Flag Season, we only held 2 practices the last month before the regional so we were a little rusty. The girls played with tremendous heart and everyone contributed at key points in all the games. The Ladies are looking forward to the challenges upcoming with competing on the National Level."

They now join the 702 Lady Raiders this January 2015 in Phoenix, Az for the NFL Flag National Tournament of Champions.
