A team of Mighty Ninety Airmen traveled to the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colo., to compete in the Rocky Mountain Flag Football Championship tournament Oct. 17. Five teams from different bases in northern Colorado and Cheyenne came to compete for the title of the 2015 Rocky Mountain champions.

The Warren team fought hard through four games before losing to the team from Fort Carson, Colo. Though they lost the championship, the team remained in high spirits as they had placed second among all the bases in the area.

Each year, five championship tournaments in different sports are held and each base receives an invitation to compete. The winners of the competition receive commemorative T-shirts and their team name on a traveling plaque.

When the next tournament begins, the previous winners return the plaque. The next Rocky Mountain Championship will be determined in a basketball tournament held next year.
