Thomas University one win away from Conference championship

Thomasville, GA – We took a trip to Thomasville on Friday afternoon where Thomas University’s women’s flag football hosted the Sun Conference Tournament.

The top four teams in the conference faced off, with Keiser University taking on St. Thomas, while Thomas University took on Webber International in the first round.

Third time the Night Hawks and Warriors met, with TU sweeping Webber in the regular season.

They would prove once again that they were too much for the Warriors to handle, cruising past Webber with a 33-14 win and a ticket to the Sun Conference Championship game Saturday morning.

“The main thing for us was that we responded,” Night Hawks head flag football coach Chelsea Parmer said. “We didn’t start out great, Webber outplayed us in the first half.”

The game was not the only thing Parmer won either. She also walked away with the Sun Conference Coach of the Year award after leading her team to a 14-1 record and regular season champions.

“That’s just a reflection of my players,” Parmer said. “It’s more so their award.”

Parmer was not the only one who earned an award either.

Running back and middle linebacker, Janae Scott, also walked away with the Sun Conference “Champion of Character” award.

The award honors a player who did the most for their community throughout the season: feeding the homeless or helping TU students with their mental health, and Scott says she feels honored to have been recognized.

“It’s a good representation of our program,” Scott said. “I like to make sure I honor myself, my family and my team.”
