2015 IWFL All Star Weekend!

A group of Reign players and staff traveled to Rock Hill, South Carolina last weekend for the 2015 IWFL Championship weekend, and what a great weekend it was!  Four great games and some special honors for our team members.  Head Coach Mitchi Collette was selected as the Defensive Coordinator for the All Star Game and Reign Captain #57 Marabeth "Mama Red" Lewis was selected as a captain for the Eastern Conference All Stars.  All three of the Reign players that made the trip (Lewis, #44 Angie "E" Blasingim and #1 Antoinette "Toni" Harris) also earned spots in the Eastern Conference starting lineup.

We are proud to have participated in a great weekend of football.  Congratulations to the winners of all the bowl games, including the Pittsburgh Passion who completed their run to back-to-back championships with a victory over the Utah Falconz.

  • Affiliate Bowl: Detroit Pride 24, San Antonio Regulators 22
  • Founders Bowl: Carolina Phoenix 32, Madison Blaze 9
  • All Star Game: East 29, West 12
  • IWFL World Championship: Pittsburgh Passion 41, Utah Falconz 37
We have some exciting events coming up including an appearance at Toledo Pride at the end of August and both Komen for the Cure events in Northwest Ohio at the end of September.  Offseason training activities and tryouts will be here before you know it, so keep an eye on this website and our Facebook page for information on how you can get involved with the Reign for the 2016 season!

Reign Falls In Playoffs

Unfortunately Reign Nation, our pursuit of the 2015 IWFL Championship is over with a 20-6 loss to the Carolina Queens Saturday night.  We battled hard as we have every game this year, but on that night we came up short.  Congratulations to the Queens and good luck to all teams still in contention for the championship.

Though we will not play again in 2015, we have plenty of exciting events and appearances planned through the off-season.  As we get closer to the championship weekend and the IWFL All Star Team is announced, we will announce any team members that are fortunate enough to be chosen to represent the Eastern Conference.

We will proudly display our third division championship banner - first as a member of the IWFL - at our home games next spring, and we will defend it with the pride and passion it took to claim it.  Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters that helped make the 2015 season a success, and until we take the field once again, remember to ALWAYS Let It Reign!
