With a .500 win percentage, the lady Raiders have put up a solid season, going 6-6 so far with a season filled with many ups and downs. 

Key players in the Raiders’ success include sophomore Madison Aguilera and junior Riana Doctor. Both form the backbone of the team, with Doctor averaging 14 points, seven rebounds and an assist per game, while Aguilera averages 16 points, one assist and one steal per game. 

One problem the Raiders face this season is right now, in fact, with the loss of their juniors and seniors due to COVID-19 concerns. The Raiders need to hack out a couple of scrappy wins with their underclassmen in order to keep their mission intact. 

“Going through the ups and downs of the season has shown that we are more than just a team and that we have a lot of love for each other,” mentioned Aguilera. “I feel like we can grind out the first two games in the playoffs, without the upperclassmen, and be legitimate contenders when we get them back.”

Wins against Oxbridge Academy and Pine Crest have been game changers for the Raiders, as they finish off the regular season and make their run for the playoffs. Continuing their trajectory handling games this way will be the key to reaching the girls basketball team’s goal of bringing a state title back to the Blue Dungeon.

The Raiders have one more game left in their regular season against SLAM on Wednesday, January 27th, at 7:00 pm in the Blue Dungeon. Make sure to come out and support your Raiders as they close out the regular season.
