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.

Simmons
A happier time

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

Saturday Scrimmages

Lady Rams fans, this Saturday, 2/25, at 10:00 and noon at A.C. Reynolds, there will be two scrimmages. Come out and watch our women as they are on the cusp of starting their official season.

[Note: on the Women’s Schedule link, I’ve denoted the scrimmages as games between TCR v ACR. Just please be aware that these are scrimmages and that this is NOT the official start to the season.]

Coach Martin in the news

LINK TO ASHEVILLE CITIZEN TIMES ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT COACH MARTIN

It is official. Coach Martin has been named to head the TCR soccer program. Many congratulations to him!

Coach Martin made a statement, “I would like to thank Principal Amy Rhoney and Athletic Director Laura Beatty for this amazing opportunity to lead the TC Roberson soccer program.  The support shown by the Roberson administration makes it one the best jobs in the state.  I would also like to thank Rob Wilcher for allowing me to grow as a coach as his assistant.  To follow up such a legend will be a tall task but one that I look forward to.  It will be an honor to work with such talented and capable players and to represent such an amazing community.  We will work hard every day to live up to the standard set by Coach Wilcher and countless alumni that have come before us.”
