Great Season for Raider Basketball


Congratulations to the boys basketball team and Head Coach Ben Young for an outstanding year of Raider basketball. The team made it all the way to the state tournament for the first time since 2008 and ended the season with 31 wins, defeating at least one school in every classification, from 5A to 5C. 
In post-season news, seniors Cade Tate and Griffin Kennedy were selected to the All-District basketball team. Collin Bueche, also a senior, was named to the All-Academic Composite Boys Basketball Team. Only 22 students across the state qualified for this honor in boys basketball, which requires a GPA of 4.0. 
Also on the team are seniors London Deshotels, juniors Jack Kahn, Ben Holliday, and Phillip Lukinovich, sophomores Parker Collett, Ben Stafford, Wesley Stevenson, and Grant Treadaway, and freshman Drew Burbank, Collin Coates, Charlie Garrison, and Robby Harrison.  
“Thank you to all the students, parents, and fans who came out to support the basketball team this year,” said Coach Young. “We are looking forward to another successful season next year.”
