The Lady Raider Basketball team kicked off the district season with a win against Kemp this past Tuesday, December 15th. Last year, the team won the State championship for district 12-3A. The girls were 11-3 for the pre-season and are so far 1-0 for the district season.

There are 14 districts games in total that the girls will play during their district season. After that, they could potentially make it to playoffs. This year, the team has no seniors and consists of four juniors and four sophomores.

“We have eight girls on the varsity team this year with no seniors,” Head Coach Jill McDill said. “This is exciting for me as a coach because we will be working with essentially the same team for the next two years. The girls have great attitudes and care about each other on and off the court!”

McDill was honored as the 2A Coach of the Year last spring. She and assistant coach Casey Reeves have set the Lady Raiders onto a course of winning.

“Each season I look forward to working with a new group of girls and getting the group to bond together as a true team,” McDill said. “We learn to use the strengths of each player and work together to be the best team possible. This group has worked extremely hard, and I feel like we are ready to get the district season going,”

The team’s next district game will be Friday  against Scurry Rosser.
