Senior Athletes and Season Successes Honored

Kim Dukes
On our last day of school, the community gathered on the front lawn to honor senior athletes and the sports successes of the year. Athletic Director Sarana Hyatt called up individual teams that finished the season as regular season or GPAC tourney champions, including varsity girls soccer, varsity cross country, and varsity basketball. Then all of the GPAC All-Conference and VISAA state honored athletes for 2021-2022 were called up and presented their certificates - what a large and talented group. It was amazing to see so many athletes honored, some for multiple seasons of play. All senior athletes were called up and presented with an individual photo collage of their time at Tandem. Some had been multi-sport players for their entire time here. Finally, coach/PE teacher Avis Fields was honored for her recent community recognition as Coach of the Year by local organization HER Sports. It was a great day for Tandem Friends sports - go Badgers!
