    Coolidge High School made history Friday night with the first game under new head coach Natalie Randolph, the first female football coach in school history. But it won't go down as the Colts' finest hour.

    The Randolph administration kicked off the season with a 28-0 loss to Archbishop Carroll.

    Randolph is one of only a handful of female football coaches across the country.

    The 30-year-old is a former wide receiver for the D.C. Divas women’s professional team.

    This is her third season as a coach. She worked with receivers in 2006 and 2007 at H.D. Woodson.
