On February 11, the Blue Ridge Raiders boys basketball team faced off against the Wyoming Seminary Blue Knights. It was the last regular season home game for the Raiders and it was senior night.
The seniors from the basketball team are Dalton Rutter, Timmy Higgins, JJ Rosa, and James Barbour. The senior cheerleaders are Rachel Stendo, Clara Allen, and Jordan Wiegand. The managers of the basketball team are Stephanie Smith and Tiffani Henke.
Everyone was honored before the start of the varsity game with a walk out and a paragraph that they wrote about their experiences. The four seniors of the basketball team started the game. After a rough start the Blue Ridge Raiders climbed themselves out of a 12 point deficit and ended up winning the game by 9 points.
Dalton Rutter has this to say, “It was good to come out with the win and there’s nothing like that senior night magic.”
Carson Gallagher boosted the Raiders as he hit a whopping eight three pointers for a total of 24 points. Connor Cranage also led the way with 18 points. The Raiders are currently on a 8 game winning streak and are 18-3 chasing that league title!
