Varsity Boys Basketball Slays Visiting Spartans

The Varsity Boys Basketball team hosted cross-town rival North Springs in a battle of Region 6-AAAAA foes on Friday, December 14, 2018. With both student sections full, the game was a loud and thrilling end to the week. 

The Raiders got out to a sluggish start and trailed 10-7 at the end of the first quarter. After finding their touch around the basket, the Raiders came back to lead 22-21 at the half. A productive third period saw the Raiders maintaining a slim 33-30 margin. In the final quarter, an inspired offense built up as much as a ten point buffer, and the Raiders claimed a 54-47 victory over the visiting Spartans. The win moves the Raiders to 8-3 on the season and 4-2 in Region 6-AAAAA competition.

Senior Davis Herndon led all scorers with 15 points and 9 rebounds followed by Juniors Korbin Lane (11 points) and Cody Kaplan (10 points).

The Raiders travel to Lanier High School on Saturday, December 15 for a non-region contest vs. Duluth
