Team Of the Week: Rider Lady Raiders - October 12,2017

The Rider Lady Raiders defeated 22 ranked Denton Ryan Friday night, ending the Ryan Raiders' 20 game district winning streak.

"Beating them in 3 was like a cherry on top, I knew the girls could do it, but watching them really perform and execute," said Rider head coach Alysha Humpert. "You know, honestly just making Denton Ryan earn their points and we minimized our unforced errors. And like i said the girls were really prepared. They studied, they knew exactly what they were running  on every serve or receive. I think it just really slowed the game down for us." 

"We were very prepared, on paper and in our heads," said captain Kameron Grace. "We weren't getting down by one or two points. You could tell that we were in the game, in the moment. We weren't thinking about anything else but getting each point." 

"That week before practice, that's when we've been preparing for and to come out and actually do it was good," said captain Lindsey Dodson.

After a loss to Denton Ryan a month ago, the Lady Raiders went on a 7-game winning streak, and with that the Rider Lady Raiders earned Team of the Week honors!

"These girls have great parents that have taught them in general that you need to have pride in what you're doing and do it to 110 percent," Humpert said. "And then me as their coach, I just try to enhance that every single day."

Friday night's win gives the Lady Raiders momentum to finish the season out strong.

"I think we're confident right now and we're all kind of in the groove with each other so, I think we're ready just to go out and on the court and prove it," Dodson said.

The Lady Raiders take on the Lady 'Cats in Sherman Tuesday night.
