Sport Saved My Life Twice: The Story of Shawn Sadowski

The first time was Australian Rules Football and the second was Wheelchair Curling.

That Was the Season That Was 2021

The beauty and the tyranny of playing a game with an oblong ball is that you never know how it’s gonna bounce.

2021 USAFL Nationals - Women's Division Preview

For the past ten seasons, it’s been either the Denver Bulldogs or San Francisco Iron Maidens who have lifted the trophy at the end of the season.  The Doggies had their run of six, followed by the Maidens current run of four.

In 2019, the Maidens felt the challenge of the Seattle Grizzlies, New York Magpies, and Minnesota Freeze.  And the Bulldogs saw their run of deep runs at Nationals come to an unceremonious end, finishing sixth and last in D1, and leaving Lakewood Ranch, Florida without even a goal to reminisce on.
