The 2021-22 school and sports season has come to an end. We would like to thank the 2022 class of senior student-athlete graduates for all they have done during their athletic careers for the Tinora Rams.
Each of you played with pride, heart, and brought a lifetime of memories to everyone.
Individually, each of you made coaches, parents, and the Ram community very proud during your 4 years at Tinora as a Ram.
The 2021-’22 sports season was one of the best in recent memories, many records fell as well as many GMC championships were won by the Rams, those are listed below.
In the weeks ahead for the graduates, all sorts of emotions such as the relief of “Finally, I’m out of school, forever” to the sad realizations of “Wow, I will never be around all my friends, classmates, teammates, coaches, and teachers ever again.”
All those tiny conversations between classes in the halls, at lockers, and on the way to the field/gym have all ended.
As the months and years pass, each memory will remain strong, while some, or more than likely most, wishing for just one last practice, one last game, that great 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, grandma, or dad.
Down the road, you will wish for just 5 more minutes with your classmates, teammates & coaches.
As for everyone still in school, please enjoy every single moment, take nothing for granted. One day, everything will be gone, and your adult life will start before you know it.
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 it.
