Regardless of what happens in 2015, this year's Lady Rams team has a firm legacy that will last forever. For Tarver, it couldn't have been a better year to end on.
"In 18 years, this has been the top of the list for me," he said. "They won the most games, they advanced the farthest and I could not have had a more enjoyable season because of how they played the game and how much they enjoyed each other and came together. Having a year like this with a group of kids like this, that's what coaches dream of. I'm very fortunate to have been a part of it."
Indeed, the entire Mineral Wells community is fortunate to have been a part of it. Against all odds, the Lady Rams earned their place among the elite. And the memory of their historic season will surely be treasured for years to come.
