The Lady Raider Basketball team participated in two games over the holiday break splitting those contests going 1-1. The first contest was a home game against Pinewood Christian Academy. The Raiders came out firing from the start having early success both offensively and defensively. Ultimately the Raiders proved to be too much for Pinewood with SCPS coming away with the 48-37 victory. The next day the Raiders traveled to take on cross-town rival Calvary Day School. A clash between two of the best teams in the region lived up to the hype as the Raiders and Cavaliers exchanged leads almost the entire game. The Raiders were able to take a 1-point lead into the 4th quarter. However, the Cavalier offense caught fire midway through the 4th quarter creating some separation. In the end, the Cavaliers were able to hold off the Raiders handing SCPS a loss 33-43. The Raiders will be back in action again this Tuesday as they take on the Claxton Tigers @ 6:00 p.m. in Eckburg Arena.
