The Lady Raiders Basketball Team visited conference foe Scecina on Saturday. The girls jumped on the Lady Crusaders from the outset with a big first quarter in which they scored 21 points. Cardinal Ritter shot just 31% from the field on Saturday, but came away with a 51-29 victory. The Lady Raiders were led in scoring by Gabby “Heat Check” Hicks with 17 points with Emma “Lights Out” Litzelman and Meghan “Sure Shot” Sandifer in double figures with 12 and 10 respectively. Chloe Olejnik was strong with a good floor game notching 8 rebounds and 5 assisits. This moves the girls to 7-3 on the season, 4-0 in ICC, with 3rd ranked Triton Central coming to Ritter on Tuesday night.
Your JV Lady Raiders continued their winning ways this weekend also beating Scecina 36-25. The game was tight early but the Raiders full court pressure was too much to handle. In a balanced attack, Maddie Sandifer led with 13 while Liv Webb and Lauren Beaman each scored 9.
Both Teams play again on Tuesday against the Lady Titans. Both teams are undefeated in ICC play and this game could be a deciding factor in who wins conference at the end of the season. JV starts at 6 PM with Varsity starting after. The theme for the student section is Safari Night as the Raider Nation will be looking to hunt down the Lady Tigers.
