FLAG FOOTBALL: The Olympic Heights flag football team was the recipient of some sweet team gear courtesy of the Miami Dolphins and Nike. Miami Dolphins community relations representatives visited OH on April 14 to give the Lady Lions warm up sweats, cleats, and a variety of other gear in recognition of National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Even the boys football team benefited from the visit as they too received team gear from the Miami Dolphins and Nike.
