Girls flag football started as a pilot project in Montana High Schools. Three high schools initially took the ball and ran with it in 2022--- Flathead, Glacier, and Butte. Then, in 2023, Lockwood and Mission fielded teams. The results have apparently been lifechanging for many of these young ladies.
