Flag Football teams take gold at NIRSA Regionals

Over the weekend, two of our flag football teams won championships in their respective divisions at the NIRSA (National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association) Flag Football Regionals at the University of Maryland.

The Monroe Bears and Montgomery County Hammers took to the field for a weekend of stiff competition in very cold temperatures and both came out victorious!

In addition to winning team trophies, Monroe County’s Antoyne Perry won individual gold in the kicking competition and Montgomery County’s Shawn Loweree won individual gold in the punting competition.

Congratulations to all of the athletes and coaches who represented Special Olympics Pennsylvania in such a fantastic way!
