The Ram Family hurts…

We are all reeling from the loss of Reilly Simmons, and so I want to take the opportunity to extend my heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. The word ‘shocking’ just doesn’t capture the full meaning of what we are all feeling.

A happier time

Please keep her, her family, her friends in your hearts, mind, and prayers.

Thank you players, coaches, parents, and fans for all the support, direction, love, and friendship this season. It was one to remember. As Coach Martin said tonight, “this team ranks as one of the best teams of all time at TCR, and that’s saying something.”

On to Play Cox Mill

The Lady Rams defeated Weddington tonight in a downpour ! First, almost the entire first half was played (shy 5:33) when a lightning strike, then repeated strikes forced the Ladies to leave the field for several hours. Upon their return to complete the first half, Weddington jumped into their only lead of the night. But, in the second half the Lady Rams took over and scored 2 goals (from Maddy Luckett and Mazie Hughes). With this, the Lady Rams will head to Cox Mill on Tuesday (5/22) to play in the Regionals (semi-finals).

Here are some photos from tonight’s win!
