Arvada West won the girls flag football title in a runaway victory over Cherry Creek. The team went undefeated with a perfect 22-0 season. Quarterback Saylor Swanson played a pivotal role in the victory, throwing five touchdown passes and intercepting a pass. The girls' love for the sport and their motivation to avenge last year's loss drove them to succeed. High school flag football's popularity is rapidly growing, and there are hopes for it to become a sanctioned sport as early as next year. The game's growth is not limited to Colorado, as efforts are being made to make it an Olympic demonstration sport and it is gaining recognition in college athletics.
