Lady Lynx Have Exceptional Flag Football Season

The high school flag football season is just over halfway done, and the Lady Lynx have had yet another exceptional year thus far.

The team is 9-1 on the season, and the only loss came when Service pulled off an upset to snap Dimond’s 42-game unbeaten streak.

Thankfully for Dimond, one loss will not impact the team in a negative way and will only motivate them to try and finish off the season with another state title after winning the past two seasons.

Senior Hannah Gastaldi has been pleased with the way her team has been playing this season.

Gastaldi plays both guard and rusher and has been a member of the varsity team for the past two years.

She does not want to “jinx” anything but is very optimistic that they can win State this year.

The only team that she thinks could pose any sort of threat is the Service team that beat Dimond about a week ago.

Senior Justine Anderson has had a good season and is happy with how the team is doing.

Anderson has played two and a half years on the varsity team as a right guard after being pulled up from JV mid-season of her sophomore year.

She does not think the loss to Service has impacted their season at all and said, “Even though it was a tough loss, it only motivates us to work even harder.”

Anderson also thinks that there is a good chance that Dimond will do a three-peat and win State this season.

Senior Lauren Hines is one of the captains on the team and is playing in her third season as a varsity player.

Hines plays both wide-receiver and linebacker and loves the game.

She thinks that they have a very good chance at winning State and that if they play their best then nobody can beat them.

Hines said, “If any team is gonna beat us it would be Service but there is no way we are letting that happen again.”

She is very confident in her team and hopefully they will finish off their season strong.

Senior Neno Martinez is the other captain of the team and has done very well in order to give her team the best opportunity to win.

This is her third year playing on the varsity team as a wide-receiver and safety.

Martinez has been happy overall with how the season has gone, except for the one loss to Service.

“I am only disappointed because I know we are the better team.”

However, she is putting all her focus into the last few regular season games before it comes time to defend their state title.
