OUTSTANDING SEASON, LADY RAMS SOCCER!
The 2017 Lady Rams soccer team began their journey back in June during summer practices and conditioning. They were excited about the new D2 format in athletics but also curious on how it would turn out. Knowing the competition would be much tougher in district and region play and the fact their regular season non-district schedule was brutal in playing the class AAA powerhouses like Oak Ridge, Farragut, Morristown West, and Jefferson County, as well as class A state tournament team of Alcoa and class AA Seymour (also in the elite 8), these hard working young ladies were still optimistic and up for the challenge. They rose to the occasion throughout the regular season grind, as they gained a ton of respect from the stiff competition and the results paid off. These young ladies stepped into D2 soccer and in their first year made it to the district tournament championship game, made the top 4 in region, secured a state tournament birth, beat 2 traditional state tournament teams in Notre Dame and Battle Ground Academy, and finished the season in round 2 of the state tournament quarter-finals Elite 8 in Memphis. They accepted the challenge, they exceeded expectations, and they made their coaching staff, their families, their school, and their community very proud.
Congratulations to the 2017 Lady Rams Soccer team on an outstanding season!
