Senior Night is a night most athletes will remember forever.
A night growing up as a biddy volleyball player, watching other seniors play, one never thinks will ever come, then suddenly one night you are celebrating your career with your parents, coaches, fans, and teammates as the season, and your high school years wind down.
Prior to the varsity match vs. Wauseon, the Tinora family celebrated its four seniors, Scylea Zolman, Dakota Sines, Kaylee Dickinson, and Addison Gerken, for all their years as Lady Rams volleyball players.
Tinora was playing as well as anyone in the area coming into the match vs. the Indians of Wauseon. The Lady Rams had won 10 of their last 11 matches, including seven straight.
Tinora wasted no time, staying focused on the task ahead, taking the initial set, 25-13 to take a 1-0 lead.
Set two also went to the Lady Rams, 25-14, to take a 2-0 advantage.
Set three went to the Lady Rams 25-13, Tinora took the match 3-0.
One of the best moments of the night came in the third set when injured senior Dakota Sines got to join her teammates on the floor for one last time. Dakota unfortunately has missed her senior season due to injury.
STATS: Coming soon
With the win, the Lady Rams improve to 15-5 and will host Edgerton on Tuesday in the last regular season home game.
The OHSAA tournament draw will be on Sunday, this will determine who and when the Lady Rams postseason journey begins.
Wauseon falls to 3-17 on the season. The Indians will next play Monday at Bowling Green.
The Higbea Embroidery Player of the Game went to Dakota Sines. What a great night to see Dakota on the floor one last time with her teammates.
