Boston’s women’s tackle football team accomplishments are featured in ‘The Hub of Sports’ exhibit at Terminal B
BOSTON — The Boston Renegades are being recognized as “Game Changers” for their barrier-breaking contribution to Boston’s rich sports heritage. The professional women’s tackle football team’s accomplishments, including winning six national championships since 2010, are featured in a permanent display at Boston Logan Airport ‘s Great Hall in Terminal B. The display is part of “The Hub of Sports” exhibit at the terminal, which highlights some memorable moments, unforgettable championships and the collective inspirational stories of several professional, amateur, and collegiate athletes from Massachusetts and beyond. The exhibit also includes a video celebrating the Boston Renegades’ 2018, 2019, and 2021 National Championship wins among other sports champions.
“The Boston Renegades are true ‘Game Changers’ both on and off the field,” said Denise Ridge, Massport’s Deputy Director of Aviation Customer Service. “Massport is proud to put a spotlight on these national champions and hometown heroes in this special exhibit at Terminal B that honor athletes who have made an indelible mark on the sports world and the community at large. We congratulate the Renegades for a remarkable season and we applaud your mission to empower young women and girls through sports. We hope our passengers enjoy this exhibit as they travel through Logan airport.”
Brooke Goodman, a former Renegades defensive end and team captain, began discussions on the project with Massport in 2018 and said, “It’s exciting to see the team featured at the airport! We’ve walked through there many times over the years as we travel, often to our own championship games, and each time we would admire the banners of other pro teams hanging in Terminal C. It’s an honor to receive this recognition; it’s a reflection of the hard work of many people and hopefully the exposure will bring in more fans and respect for our sport.”
The Renegades are the current national champions in the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA), the premier women’s tackle football league. The team competed for the National Championship on July 24, 2021 against the Minnesota Vixen at Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Tom Benson Stadium in Canton, Ohio. The Renegades beat the Vixen 42-26 to earn their third consecutive championship having also won in 2018 and 2019 (2020 season was cancelled).
