We had a really good spring with a lot of improvement over the fall,” Raiders head coach Robb Kolodziej said. “Our shooters showed great resilience in poor weather conditions. The entire coaching staff (Mike Hammer, Steven Weagle, Nikki Shoutz, Mark Robideaux) are all very proud of not only the performance but the growth in sport and spirit. The team finished first in our conference ahead of local rivals UMD, Pine Tech and UND as well as several other midwestern teams.”
