As the 2020-21 school season has come to an end, we would like to thank all 2021 senior athlete graduates for all they have done during their athletic careers for the Rams of Tinora.
Each of you played with pride, heart, and brought a lifetime of memories to everyone around you. Individually, you each made coaches, parents, and the community very proud during your 4 years.
The weeks ahead may yield all sorts of emotions, relief of “I’m finally out of school, forever” to the sad realizations of “I will never be around all my classmates, teammates, coaches, teachers ever again as a group.”
As the years pass, each memory will remain strong, yet wishing for just one last practice, one last game, that feeling of Friday Night under the lights, one last bus ride home after a huge win, one last cheer from family & friends, one last hug after a tough loss from mom or dad.
Down the road, you will wish for just 5 more minutes with your classmates, teammates & coaches.
Enjoy every single moment, take nothing for granted.
Below we will acknowledge senior athletes as well as recap and highlight each sport.
(If I missed anyone or any accomplishment, I truly apologize. Please let me know and I can add.)
