It really is turning into March Madness here in the Burg!
Both our Girls and Boys teams will now have a shot to avenge regular season losses to arch-rival Pickerington Central, with the stakes as high as can be!
Our boys (now 20-5!) grinded out a gutty two point win over a very tough Upper Arlington team last night and have returned to the District Championship! They will defend their District Title on Saturday at the Columbus Convention Center (Battelle Hall) against the rival Tigers of Pick Central, who are the best seeded team remaining in the Region.
The two weekend rivalry matchups will be as follows:
- Lady Raiders Friday night at 7:30 vs. Pick Central @ Otterbein In the Regional Finals
- Boys Saturday at 1:30PM vs. Pick Central @ Columbus Convention Center (Battelle Hall) in the District Finals
We are encouraging everyone to arrive to both sites early as both offer some logistical challenges. Parking at Otterbein isn’t the best and this is the Central District’s first time using the Battelle Hall as a site, so there is some level of uncertainty there logistically.
Pre-sale tickets remain available for the girls game Friday night as outlined here: https://reynoldsburgraiders.org/2019/03/06/lady-raiders-advance-tickets-on-sale-for-friday/
Tickets for the boys game will be available on site at the Convention Center for $7 on Saturday – again, arriving early for that one in particular is encouraged. Parking there will be $5 in the garages.
We look forward to seeing plenty of Raider Gold (Purple I suppose is a given considering the opponent…) at these two games.
