Thirteen former CHS basketball players, including six members of the 1993 state championship team, were on hand to challenge today’s varsity squad in the first Lady Raiders alumnae basketball game Tuesday.

While today’s Lady Raiders won by a fairly wide margin, the level of competition was both intense and enjoyable for both teams. Members of both the alumni and present-day squad agreed that the game should become an annual event.

Donations were accepted at the door, and all proceeds go toward the Lady Raiders basketball program.
