The Lady Raiders finished regular season play on the road against 4A #8 ranked New Palestine. The Raiders battled a senior laden team from New Palestine for four quarters coming up short 67-55. The game was much closer than the final score indicated as the girls went in to halftime tied at 33 apiece on Linsey “Say Hey” Waggoner’s three point basket at the buzzer. The third quarter was a back and forth battle and the Lady Raiders wouldn’t back down trailing by 3 heading into the fourth.
In the fourth quarter it was close throughout until the Raiders had to foul down the stretch. Good things to come from this game as we look forward to Sectionals beginning next Friday at 6 pm at Chatard vs. Attucks. The girls were led in scoring by Meghan “Sure Shot” Sandifer with 12 points and Emma “Lights Out” Litzelman with 10 points.
