Sports News: 
GOOD MORNING COLUMBIA! On Monday the varsity volleyball team lost by a total of 5 points and on Tuesday we lost by a total of 6 points. On Tuesday the Raiders left nothing in the tank, they gave it all on the floor. Led by a freshman, our very own "cat woman" Kaitlynn Kurpinski, 9 digs, perfect on the serving line with two aces and 32 assists. Senior libero Nicolle "all over the floor" Jenny had 12 digs, and a couple bruises. Shelby Friedel, had 7 blocks and 4 kills and our "cage fighter" Alison Schafer was all about giving her all, you have to see it people, this kid is AMMMMAZING. Alison had 17 digs and 6 kills. Bailey Patouhas was more than a "sledge hammer", she led the team with 13 kills and 18 digs, WOW! Our super sophomore Becca "don't make me mad" Tacchite, played the game of the year. She was a shut down defense. Becca is 5"7' going against a 5''11' outside hitter from Lutheran west. Guess who won that matchup, to be honest and real this team has one heart beat, they are fun to watch and their hard work is contagious. Coach Tahan thanks our loud fans that made the trip to Lutheran West. They got their money's worth and like always GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO RAIDERS!
