Hammonton ready for a new year of flag football

Blue Devils ready for new flag football season

HAMMONTON—A year after making its debut, Hammonton High School’s girls flag football team is ready to begin a new season.

Girls flag football is one of the growing in interest across the region and the state, and Hammonton is looking to build on the success the team had last season.

Coaches Tami Schaffer and Averi Olive spent much of last season teaching and learning a sport that most of the Blue Devils players were new to playing.

Hammonton lost several of last season’s top players to graduation or other sports, but the team has around 15 players this year and is looking to build on the success it enjoyed last spring.

“We had many seniors last year, and with girls lacrosse a new sport here [at Hammonton] a few girls decided to play that, so we’re young, but the girls we have work hard and we’ve been very encouraged,” Olive said.

Hammonton will play an eight game schedule, followed by playoffs.

On March 27, Hammonton hosted Kingsway in a preseason scrimmage. The visiting Dragons came away with a win, but the Blue Devils showed some potential.

“These girls work hard. They’re learning, and Coach Schaffer and Coach Olive bring some enthusiasm and expect a lot from them,

Hammonton athletic director Chris Sacco said.

Hammonton will open the 2024 season on the road at Mainland on April 11 at 4 p.m.
