Head coach: Dalton Park
2019-20 Record: 18-8 (District 9 Class 3A Champions)
This year: 2-0
How things got started: The Raiders are the only D9 team that’s 2-0, and perhaps the whole state, since they played Penns Manor and St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy on Dec. 11. They won both games in lopsided fashion, 59-30 and 78-45 respectively.
Top returning players: Senior guard Jace Miner (11.9 ppg.), who scored 46 points in the first two games and was a preseason D9and10Sports.com All-District 9 selection, and senior forward Robert Keth (11 ppg.) are the returning starters. Miner was a Third Team All-District 9 player last year. Also back from the regular playing rotation are juniors Danny Lauer (1.2 ppg.) and Griffin Ruhlman (3.5 ppg).
Top players lost: All-District 9 player and 1,000-point scorer Aaron Park, Logan Byerly, Bryce Baughman, David Cable and Jack Krug.
Key newcomers: Juniors Hunter Geer and Ian Pete saw limited varsity minutes last year. Other juniors looking for playing rotation time are Ryan Geer, Garner McMaster and Jamison Rhoades. Sophomores Noah Peterson, Isaac Hetrick, Clayton Cook and Connor Marshall all saw brief varsity time as well in the opening games.
