Women's football league kick offs season
Hagåtña - The Guam Women’s Tackle Football League (GWTFL), together with Ambros Inc., the exclusive beer sponsor of the GWTFL, kicked off its second season of full contact tackle football for women of all ages March 9.
This year’s board members - President Marge Leon Guerrero, Vice President Jessie Rosario, Treasurer Tess Laguana, Secretary Monica Sarusal and Public Affairs Officer Carlina Charfauros - are proud to oversee a fine group of over 200 women from 8 different teams playing eight on eight football.
“With the Bud Light Guam Women’s Tackle Football League, Ambros Inc. is proud to provide a platform for our island’s women to showcase their talents and abilities by creating a positive and motivating environment through this sporting event. We also support the Bud Light GWTFL’s efforts to promote safety, sportsmanship and integrity in our island communities,” said Tom Shimizu, General Manager, Ambros Inc.
The 8 teams are: Iron Maidens, Island Stunnerz, Lady Raiders, Lady Spartans, Ruff Ryders, Sindålu, Steel Blazers and Team Legacy.
The games- which will be held every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30am and then again at 2:30pm at the Eagle’s Field in Mangilao- will commence on March 23, 2013 where these 8 teams will compete to win the championship game scheduled for June 01, 2013.
The Bud Light GWTFL is an affiliate of the International Women’s Football League (IWFL) and the all star team may go on to compete at the regional and international level in an IWFL sanctioned competition.
“Since becoming an organized sport for women last year, the teams have doubled from 4 to 8; this is a sure sign that the sense of camaraderie these women develop with each other and the community as a whole is growing,” said Jessie Rosario, Bud Light GWTFL Vice President.
“The passion and sense of self-empowerment these women display on the field is quite an inspiration; it motivates us to continue to expand the league and motivate the community-at-large to empower themselves through sports,” added Marge Leon Guerrero, Bud Light GWTFL President.
