Let’s root for the Wildfire! No, not THAT kind of wildfire. There is a school in North Dakota whose sports teams are named “Wildfire”.
The Mott/Regent School in Mott, North Dakota (map) is the proud home of the Wildfire football team — with a distinguished record, according to their website. In their nine-man football division, they were state champions in 2007, made it to the state semi-finals 2010, and to the state Quarter-Finals in 2006 and 2011.
…and rage on to Victory!
Their website proudly says:
I asked how they came up the the name. When the schools in the two towns, Mott and Regent, consolidated, they held a contest for a new name, and Wildfire was the winner.
So lets root for the Wildfire this year.
It’s good to have a schedule for Wildfire, don’t you think?:
We were able to find a couple of other football teams named Wildfire. Did you know there is a Women’s Spring Football League? I didn’t either. One of the teams in the league is the West Virginia Wildfire. From their website:
The WV Wildfire is a women’s tackle football team based in Charleston, WV. We are proud members of the Women’s Spring Football League in the 8man Division. We began our inagural season in April 2011, through hard work these ladies brought home the National Championship in 2012 after winning thier division and conference titles, along with Bob Koontz as WSFL 8s Division Coach of the Year, and Courtney Cole, WSFL 8s Division MVP.
And, the Birmingham Wildfire was a minor league professional football team that competed in the Southern Conference of the LaBelle Community Football League in 2009.
Thanks go out to Jim
