Richmond Black Widows complete impressive 2017 season, undefeated in all their division matchups

RICHMOND, VA – 17 Jun, 2017 – In its second season of play, the historic and only Richmond women’s contact football team continues to impress with another stellar season. The Richmond Black Widows secured its leadership standing in Virginia with consistently superior performance, winning every Division III game during a season schedule that pitted the team against their toughest Women’s Football Alliance (WFA) competitors, including higher division teams.

The Richmond Black Widows made WFA history with a Cinderella finish in 2016 as the first team in an inaugural season to advance to the National Conference Championship game. In that season, four of their beginner football team members were chosen as All-American players in the WFA. In the 2017 season, six of their team members received All-American status.

USA Laser Biotech was a proud 2017 sponsor for the Richmond Black Widows, providing its painless Lumix Superpulsed laser therapy to enhance recovery from injuries and provide strength-building for performance, both on and off the field.

Drs. Nelson and Sherron Marquina of USA Laser Biotech were moved by the women’s commitment to the game of football, while balancing families and careers with practices and games. Previously “football-naïve,” the doctors are now avid fans of the team.

“We gained as much from our affiliation with the team as a sponsor, as the team did from our service. It was a wonderful win-win.”  The couple encourages and challenges more hometown businesses to support RVAs historic women’s football team by signing on as a sponsor for the 2018 season. 

Lumix Superpulsed laser therapy is proven to greatly enhance the performance of athletes and effectively treat pain and inflammation sustained during injuries. Team member, Sherlanda Buskey reports, “I would not have recovered as fast without this therapy; as an athlete, this is the place to go!”

The team is in preparation for their 2018 season and encourages all women who think they have what it takes to play football to come out. Dates and locations will be posted in the near future.
