Last night we recognized all of our student-athletes for their dedication and hard-work this spring season, with special congratulations to those who were commended for their exceptional athleticism and leadership.
The spring athletic season is a short one at 7 weeks, and teams have about a week of practice before jumping right into the thick of competition. Despite this, RAMS continually rise to the occasion in an impressive display of determination and sportsmanship. This year, our RAM spring 2019 athletic season ended with two Lakes Region Championships in Varsity Softball and Varsity Baseball. Both teams won against longtime Tilton rivals New Hampton School.
Athletic Director Tara Brisson had some inspiring words for our student-athletes about the positive impact of athletics:
“Sure wins are great, championships are super great, but there is something so unifying about sports in its purest form. We play because so many years ago when we stepped on the courts, the field or the course we knew it was what we loved. We put in the work and the time to get better because we want to. We know that feeling of giving everything you have and the feeling that makes it worth it. We know that determination and perseverance learned through athletics will stay with you all your life.”
At the end of the ceremony, senior athletes who have earned five or more varsity letters during their time at Tilton School.
