RENO - A Reno women's football team has received a bye into the National Championship game.
The Nevada Storm is undefeated; outscoring their opponents by 176 points in four games. They're the only team in the spring football league to score more than 200 points, which makes it hard to even get a game anymore.
"The other teams have forfeited," said Storm owner Hilary Peterson. "The other teams have decided that we are divisional champs, and they don't feel the need to play us again."
Women's tackle football isn't anything new, but what makes the Storm different is interest. The team is growing, planning to move into an 11-on-11 league next season.
"It's maybe not the sport you grew up playing," adds Petersen. "But you can work hard and play football and really have a lot of fun on the field."
The National Championship is in Towanda, Pennsylvania on August 11th.
The Storm is holding tryouts on July 21st at 6pm at the Golden Eagle Sports Complex. For more information go to www.thenevadastorm.com
