High school flag football is in its second week of the season and the East High School Thunderbirds are trying to make it back to the playoffs after getting knocked out in the first round by South last season.
In her first year as head coach, Megan Beith is aiming to have her team in the top four when it comes to seeding at the end of the regular season. She is feeling good about the talent she has, especially at the wide receiver and quarterback positions.
Junior receiver Sierra Rosenzweig is back for her second season with the varsity squad and senior quarterback Ashley Arsenault is just the gunslinger she needs to get the ball in space. The two make a perfect and lethal combination on the field.
“They lead by example and they’re just good athletes and that’s what you want on the field for flag football – kids that can play and adapt and use the space and things like that, and Sierra and Ashley are definitely those,” said Beith. “They’re mental athletes, they have their head in the game, they know what’s going on, they can read things before it happens and those are always good kids to have on the field.”
The T-Birds’ air attack showed flashes of greatness against Chugiak on Tuesday, beating the Mustangs 20-0. Rosenzweig finished the game with three TD catches.
