The Lady Raiders traveled to the end of the Kenai Peninsula to play in the Seldovia Sea Otters Girls' Basketball Tournament this past weekend.

The Lady Raiders squared off first with Seldovia in Game 1 on Thursday night. The team didn’t disappoint, starting the game by rattling off ten straight points, displaying a good outside shooting performance against Seldovia's player-to-player pressure. The Lady Raiders led 30-15 going into half. A well-rounded surge of offense was lead by seniors Sue Yoon with 11 points and Alanna Kochuten with 10 points.  The final score was 48 to 34.

A big thanks to Lori Lane and Rande Leggett for their amazing work as sportscasters last night.  KUCB was unable to find a crew to call the games, and we were grateful for the assistance of these two volunteers.  Their coverage kicked off 4 days of live radio broadcasts from the Kenai Peninsula.
