PLAYER OF THE DAY
It's hard to award one player with this title when the entire team dominates their competition, especially in the match against Alverno. The Raiders won that match by the score 9-0, but what was even more impressive is the fact that they only lost one game the entire afternoon. While there were some close doubles battles against WLC, the Red & White still easily controlled the singles matches they won, seeing only a total of 11 games go against them in four different matches.
The Raiders will play their first home game of the season this Wednesday when they take on Marian starting at 4:00 pm from Nicolet High School.
