27-25 O T win gives Raider Boys Sub-District Title


February 29, 2024

One of the last 16 team playing High School basketball in Class D-2, the L/N Raiders fell just short of moving on to the State Tournament. They lost to the #3 Seeded team in Class D-2, SEM. However, the L/N team compiled a record of 14-11 for the 2023-24 season under coach Decker Brown and assistants. The team picture after placing second in the District is shown above: back row: Coach Decker Brown, Coach Preston Hild, Clay Williams, Nolan Ostdiek, Carter Griffis, Sawyer Cox, Hayden Mazour, Jackson Williams, Caleb Griffis, Caden Culbertson, front row: Riley Cannady, Bayln Bargen, Connor Janda, Cody Funk, Carson Vaughn, Aidan Zikmund, Couch Nolan Kawata, Jace Hoelting.

The L-N Raider boys' basketball team had the good fortune to host its District D2-2 sub-district tournament last week. The games seemed to be over before they started. Harvard defeated Dorchester for the 'play-in' game only to be matched up with L-N. Red Cloud defeated Meridian in its first game to be matched up with L-N in the championship game.

The initial games were not close and maybe added to a little excitement of the championship game between L-N and Red Cloud. The game summaries:

L-N – RED CLOUD: 27-25: OT:

No. 1 "Third times a charm . . ."

No. 2: Something old is something new . . ."...
