Raiders "Back to Normal"  Morris Early Bird Invitational.  August 25th, 2021
Heat and humidity? What's that?  The Raiders joined 11 other team at the Morris Early Bird Invitational for our first meet of the season in a less than a "Perfect Day to Run!"  The start time of the meet was delayed an hour and the end of the meet came abruptly as a storm rolled in.  None of this seemed to matter as all of the teams seemed to enjoy the opportunity to return to something that represents normal.  The Varsity girls started us off with a 4th Place Team finish.  Lauren Price (7th), Kylie DeNardo (10th), Mary Kate Pinkelman (21st), and Naomi Friedman (25th) were medal winners with Madelyn Weber finishing with a meet PR to round out the Top 5 for the Raiders.  Alyssa Kain and Emily Friedman finished 44th and 45th to finish in our Top 7.   The JV was short handed but Simone Witort took off fast with Olivia Weber not far behind.  Simone took an early lead and finished as a medal winner in 15th and Olivia finished right behind her for 16th.  Ava Benes, finished 46th for the Raiders right as the meet was called as thunder storms rolled in.  Congrats to our Raider of the Meet/Most Improved Naomi Friedman!
Overall a good start for the Raiders but we have much work left to do.  Personally, I can't wait for this heat and humidity to go away!
