Sacramento Sirens


The Sacramento Sirens are a women's semi-professional American football team, located in Sacramento, California. The team has compiled one of the most successful records in women’s full tackle football.

History

In 2001, their first year of existence, the Sirens won the divisional title and advanced to the playoffs of the Women's American Football League. In 2002 the Sirens took the league title in the championship game against the Arizona Caliente.

Joining a larger league in 2003, the Independent Women's Football League (IWFL), the Sirens traveled to New York to capture their second consecutive championship title, beating the New York Sharks. In 2004 Sacramento hosted the IWFL National Championship game where the Sirens defeated their New York rival again. A year later, in Manchester, New Hampshire, the Sirens defeated the Atlanta Xplosion in the 2005 IWFL national championship.

2006 was another successful year for the Sirens, as they finished 6-2 to win another division title and defeat the Portland Shockwave in the Western Conference Semifinal. However, one week later, the Sirens lost the Western Conference Championship to the Detroit Demolition by a score of 50-32, marking the first time in five years that the Sirens did not win their league's championship.

In 2007, the Sirens finished 7-1, winning another division title and defeating the Seattle Majestics in the semifinal round. As they had done the year before, the Sirens would lose the conference championship again to the Detroit Demolition, this time by a score of 49-0.

2008 was undeniably the Sirens' most disappointing season yet. Finishing at 4-4 and fourth place in the Pacific Northwest division, the Sirens, for the first time in team history had failed to win the division championship, qualify for the playoffs, or accomplish a winning season.

In 2009, the Sirens returned to their winning ways, finishing 5-3. However, that was still not enough for the Sirens to return to the playoffs.

However, 2010 marked the Sirens' return to dominance, as they finished 8-0 and once again won the Pacific West division title. The Sirens faced the Boston Militia in the IWFL national championship game on July 24th 2010 and lost 39-7.
