Red Raiders second in Geneva

Four go unbeaten, led by Rademacher’s 5-0 run at Fillmore Central

 

Getting mat time for the South Central Red Raiders has been a hard thing as of late, thanks to Mother Nature.

South Central was to take part in the two-day Valentine Invitational Dec. 16 and 17, but winter weather cancelled the Red Raiders trip to Valentine. This prompted South Central to add the Johnson County Central Invite to their schedule in quick fashion. The same weather system that cancelled the Valentine Invite, also cancelled the Red Raiders trip to Cook, NE, for the Thunderbird Invite Dec. 17, leaving the Red Raiders with just two meets under their belts.
