My daughter is in color guard-during practice she was attempting a head stand and felt a sharp pain in her mid abdomen on the right side...Hip flexor?

In brief: Unlikely

If you say mid abdomen on the right side, you have to have think of muscle along this region.
But this will not give your daughter a sharp pain. It would be ideal to rule out any problems along the low thoracic spine as she may be having radicular symptoms as a result of her intense physical activity. X-rays of the spine and detailed imaging of the spine could be considered.
