Boys Varsity Swimming, Girls Varsity Basketball · Closser and Boys Swim Team Named AOTM


The Cardinal Ritter Booster Club met on Wednesday night and voted for the Cardinal Ritter Booster Club January Athlete of the Month.  It was a close vote with many deserving Raiders but ultimately the Boys Swimming and Diving Team and Elena “The Closer” Closser earned the nods.

The Boys Swimming and Diving Team had the honor of being the first ever Boys Swimming and Diving team in Cardinal Ritter history to win the Indiana Crossroads Conference Championship.  It was a hard fought day, but the Raiders came away with the victory.

Closser has been the team leader for the Lady Raiders Basketball team and has been having a great end to the season.  In the last four games, she has had a 4 to 1 assist to turnover ration from her point guard position which is outstanding.  She has also averaged just over 10 points a game and is a catalyst to the team’s stifling defense.  In addition, her work ethic is unparalleled.  Closser was instrumental in the Bishop Chatard victory as she showed why she is called “The Closer”, hitting free throws down the stretch to ice the victory for the Lady Raiders.

Great job Raiders!!
