In the early morning hours of October 20th, during the 6th hour of the KUCB annual 24 hour pledge drive, two volunteers did a little research and decided to raise our goal higher than the $23,000 that staff was aiming for.

The UCS Raiders volleyball team played the visiting Cordova Wolverines on Friday evening starting at 6pm. The energy was high amongst fans and players alike as the girls swept all three games.

Coach Amber Hanson was pleased with their performance.

“I am so proud of how the Raiders played this weekend! They were calm, composed and worked as a cohesive unit,” Hanson said.
