I'm a bit ill, but we're still going to try
paying homage to that Doctor Seuss guy.
A rhyming sportscast to talk about,
Hoping my voice doesn't give out.

The Raiders respond by running the floor.

The Raiders pick up the defense in this playoff tiff.
The steal and the finish for Sydney Smith.

Another reason for Raider fandom to be beaming with pride.
Watson to Elizabeth Schaefer who sends the ball on a ride.
Schaefer connects on the long distance shot,
giving her ball club some big scoring pop.
More from the Raiders who had all of the 'O'
Aly Hammon to Smith who gets the big three to go.
Call in the janitors and strike up the band,
The Raiders keeping this game well within hand.
Rough Riders to work trying to keep this close,
feeling themselves on the second half ropes.
Tatum Kooima finds the basket after a long scoring drought,
the first Roosevelt points in the third to stave off the rout.
But the Raiders were pressing to put this one away

She dishes this one to Smith in the back

46-23 was the final for the round.
The Stevens Raiders find themselves state tournament bound.
