Hello Raider Nation! Heading into this holiday weekend, our Raiders have some big games that we need to show up and shout out for as well as some fan fun you don’t want to miss. Tonight, our Lady Raiders take on conference rivals Roswell Hornets at 6 PM in the Pit, followed by the boys. Between games, the 2019 Winterfest court will be announced at center court!
Both teams will be looking to rebound after a disappointing night of games at Etowah on Tuesday. Our Lady Raiders came up short, 39-60. Sophomore Tomisin Adenupe had an outstanding second half, scoring 13 points while shredding anyone that stood in her path. Our girls have shown a scrappy side as of late, fearlessly confronting formidable defenses.
The boys had a tough 4th quarter against Etowah Tuesday, resulting in a 35-46 loss. Junior David Sickles continues to play well in his return to action, hitting 5 three pointers. Junior Cole Morris threw one down yet again Tuesday, soaring over Etowah defenders for a big time slam. The boys look to raise their conference win percentage over .500 Friday against the Hornets.
So, with two important games, show your Raider spirit and wear white tonight. Let’s bring a blizzard inside against the rival Hornets. Tip offs at 6 and 7:30. Rise Up Raiders!
