Girls Basketball ~ Reina Washington
The Lady Raiders are 3-1 in the young season. As a freshman on the team, Reina is averaging over 14 points a games, 8 rebounds, 6 steals and 4 assists.
Boys Swim ~ Evan Dick
Evan is a first year swimmer with Raider Swimming. He has not missed a practice and gives 110% every day. He never complains and always encourages his fellow teammates. He had improved so much in such a short amount of time and is such an important part of the team. He is our athlete of the week because of all the hard work he has put into his swimming and all of the improvements that he has shown. In our first meet he swam two individual events, the 100 Free and the 100 Back along with two relays, earning points in all of his events.
Girls Swim ~ Molly O’Leary
Molly is a first year swimmer with Raider Swimming. She gives it her all in every practice and in the meets we have had so far. In our first dual meet Molly swam the 200 I.M. which is one of the hardest events to complete. She never complained when she was entered into that event, and she did an outstanding job. She followed that up with the 100 Back and two relay entries. She earned points in all of her events.
Wrestling ~ Kevin Turner, Jr.
Kevin went 5-0 at King George Invitational on Saturday, December 1st, and was the only athlete on the team to do so. It’s a great start to the season Kevin, keep you the good work!
