The Lady Raiders are scheduled to play in the semi-finals of the District 8-AAA Tournament at 6 p.m. Friday in Manchester. This is weather permitting. If games are postponed, Thunder Radio will keep you up to date.
The Lady Raiders will host the semi-finals of the district tournament and, if they win, will host the championship game. If they lose the semi-finals, they will host a third place game. Regardless, they will advance to the Region 4-AAA tournament. But winning the district tournament is a top priority for the Lady Raiders in hopes of playing at home in the Region tournament.
