Our Flag Football team made it to the PCSAA Championship!
It was such an exciting time for our Flag Football team to play in the PCSAA Championships this year. On October 10th, they played against Maya Angelou and came in 2nd place. They gave it their all and it showed on the field.
CeJun Peaks, TMA senior, reflects about his time as team captain, the PCSAA Championship and what’s next.
CeJun joined the team as a freshman, and have grown in both skill and maturity. He proved that he was ready to become the leader the team needed, which led to his selection as team captain by the coach. Over the years, Cejun played positions, such as corner, running back, safety and receiver.
TMA: How did it feel to play in the Championship this year?
CeJun: It felt great – I was proud to lead our team all the way to the finals.
TMA: How do you keep the team focused?
CeJun: By leading by example and making sure they know that I believe in them.
TMA: So, what’s next for the flag football team?
CeJun: The team will continue to build and grow. I will be moving on to play basketball and run track, but will always be available to support them.
TMA: Do you have any advice for the football team for the next season?
CeJun: Don’t hold your head down from one bad play. Focus on the next one and keep going.
Volleyball Team Advance to Playoffs
The Lady Warriors volleyball team had a successful season, making it to the PCSAA playoffs for the second year in a row. For senior and co-captain Jayla Holdip it was a bittersweet end to the season. Although the team did not advance after the first round playoffs, they played well for her final game; she graduates from TMA in June 2019. She has played since her freshman year and was instrumental to the team’s growth. “I’m really happy with our season this year, but I’m also sad because I no longer have this to look forward to.”
Thanks to the team’s impressive record in recent years, Volleyball is one of the more popular sports at TMA, with dozens of students showing up for tryouts. This year’s Lady Warriors won seven games in a row before falling to Somerset Prep, and ended the season with a 7-2 record.
“They showed resilience, and we couldn’t be more proud,” said Mr. Brian Moore, the team’s assistant head coach.
