The Coronado High girls’ flag football team

Regardless of sport, few teams in the nation were as dominant as Coronado flag football this season.

The Cougars went 22-0, winning by an average of 35 points per game. They amassed more than 8,000 yards of offense, surrendering only a little more than 4,000 yards on defense.

It was hard to imagine Coronado ever losing, even though it was mostly the same team that fell to Cimarron-Memorial in the state title game the year before.

“This was definitely a redemption year for us,” Coronado junior middle linebacker Amanda Burt says. “Every game, we focused on and thought of that horrible feeling we had losing last year. We worked hard and made sure that wouldn’t be us this year.

Finalists:

• Centennial girls’ basketball: Went undefeated against Nevada opponents, ranked No. 8 nationally by USA Today with a 29-3 overall record.

• Shadow Ridge volleyball: Won state title with a pair of five-set victories in the state tournament, rallying from down 15-13 in the decisive fifth set against Coronado in the semifinals.
