At press time the Varsity Raiders had claimed 60-51 annual "Turkey Shootout" victory over the rival Jac-Cen-Del Eagles at JCDHS, where they defended their possession of the "Ripley Publishing Co. Inc. Traveling Pride Trophy". A second SR varsity boys game win in November came following their road action over the Rising Sun Shiners on the the 25th by a final count of 67-57 over RS. The South Ripley Raider JV finds a new lead with the stepping away of Coach Brad Samples to varsity assistant coaching duties in Paul Badgley, with Curtis Stephen the JV Assistant Coach.

The JV team includes Junior: Kendall Stephen (15), Sophomores: Connor McCarty (20), Jon Adkins (5) and Sam Evans (34), joined by Freshmen: Brady Linkel (32), Colby Bush (52), Jordan Pelfrey (25), Simon Westmeier (11) and Dillon Binion (10).

Good Luck Raiders!
