Indian Relay Racing’s third stop from season opener adds heat and might to the games

 For fans of Indian Relay Racing, the sport’s exhibition in High River, Alta during the town’s annual rodeo weekend, Guy Weadick Days, is a can’t-miss attraction.

The Western Women’s Canadian Football League origins date back to 2011. Since then the Calgary Rage has grown from a small team of women wanting to play tackle football to a team that rosters 35-40 players, full coaching staff and eventually 2017 WWCFL Western Conference Champions. On Saturday, June 1, 2019, the Calgary Journal roamed the sidelines and captured the action between the undefeated Rage and provincial rivals Edmonton Storm.
