Women’s Football Combine a Success For Team Ontario

Maryland celebrated its third national title in four years last May.

Women’s football’s Team Ontario hosted a combine at Guelph University late last month.

A total of 39 football players from around the province congregated to jump, run and compete in front of the provincial team’s coaching staff, with the goal of making the squad for next year’s Challenge Cup national championship.

Running back Emilie Halle stole the show, topping the charts in three of the six categories (vertical jump, broad jump, pushups, 40-yard dash, shuttle, and 3-cone) and finished runner-up in the other three.

Halle, who plays her club football with the Detroit Dark Angels of the WFA, ran a blistering 5.03 in the 40.
