Lady Raiders win two
South Ripley first-year head coach Joe Brown is now in the win column as the Lady Raiders picked up two victories to end a busy schedule last week.
Both wins represent the first two of Brown’s tenure after having taken over for Shane Tompkins who spent four years at the helm. Even better for Brown was the fact that he got some serious family help in his starting lineup in order to accomplish the feat.
