On day 2 of our winter season reviews we take a look back at both the boys and girls basketball teams who once again tasted postseason play in 2017-18. The boys team finished out their regular season 14-6 earning a trip to BC High in the first round of the D1 South sectional where unfortunately their run came to an end as they fell to the Eagles 54-42. Despite the early exit this year the team will be looking next year to once again make a run at both the Herget and D1 crowns despite losing some key talent to graduation.
Girls basketball meanwhile finished their regular season 15-5 and earned the 6 seed in D1 South. After a home first round win over Whitman Hanson, the girls faced an always talented Mansfield squad in the quarterfinals and despite leading at halftime came up a bit short falling 48-35 to the Hornets. With the likes of Gianna Palli and Brooke Guiffre returning next season look for the Raiders to be right back in the thick of things in the Herget and D1 South.
