Trotters of all ages and speeds gathered at the Aquatic Center to check in and sip hot cocoa provided by the PCR.

Around 7pm, runners and walkers made their way to Kelty Field and back, often high-fiving fellow participants as they passed.

The Junior High and Junior Varsity teams started off the evening with their final scrimmages of the season to bleachers full of spectators.

Following the JH and JV games, the Raiders Varsity team took the court and honored this years Senior players for their hard work over the years. Afterward, the team proceeded to win three games in a row, securing an overall win against Birchwood.

Saturday evening, the Raiders played just as tough, winning the first three out of a possible five games. It was a great weekend for the Raiders and Coach Wood said, “every team played their very hardest and offered great competitive games.”

Coach Wood credits the terrific season in part to all of the coaches, including Miss Rachel Peter, Mrs. Christie Morris and Mr. Nick Cron. She also wanted to extend a special thank you to the athletes, their parents and the community for their love and support, adding “we really couldn’t do it without you!” 

The Varsity team will be headed to the Regional competition in Soldotna on Tuesday, November 29th. 

The annual Blueberry Bash was Sunday, September 25th in the UCSD small gym. This year the event was hosted by Jolene Longo and was a fundraiser for the UCSD wrestling team. 

There were dozens of delectable blueberry dishes submitted, both savory and sweet, but a few stood out to the twelve judges as blue-ribbon worthy. After an hour of tasting, the judges made their decisions.
