The 2022 Cinnaminson Football team tackled a successful season for themselves, especially a noticeable improvement in comparison to last year. As their 2021 team record was 2-8, this year’s record was  boosted to 6-3. With the team’s home opener victory of 31-12 against Collingwood, the boys remained prepared and focused on overcoming the challenges of the season. The team was led by seniors Isaiah Ruiz and Jack Zarnawski, who were positive role models to their teammates by encouraging them and sharing ways to improve amongst their teammates. Regardless of not securing a divisional title this year, the boys’ football team still had impressive wins, such as their victory against Delran, where the game ended with a final score of 27-23 for the Pirates. Despite falling to Haddonfield in their first round of playoffs, the Pirates are looking forward to perfecting their winning streak in the next few seasons.
