Raiders defeat Raiders in alumni vs. alumni games


The Lake Roosevelt Raiders alumni vs. alumni basketball game was a big success, with good turnout and close games, according to Miranda Salas, who helped organize the event.

Two games were played, one between the guys and one between the girls.

In the men’s game, the white team defeated the crimson team by less than 10 (official scores unavailable), and in the women’s game the crimson team won by four points.

In the women’s game, “the white team had the first half, but then we got kind of tired,” said Salas, who played on the white team. “Then the crimson team started utilizing their three-point shooters and sinking those three-point shots.”

Salas said that the players and the crowd of spectators had a great time. “We all wanted to play again,” she said. “We’re really hoping to do it again next year.”

On the winning white team for the guys were Lake Roosevelt graduates Jake Palmer, Scott Rosco, Trey Nicholson, Charly Joseph, Edward Wolfe, Gus Smith, Nick Barnaby, Brian Nissen, and Coby Dick. The crimson team consisted of Matthew Pleasants, Kyle Holt, Taren Redstar, Merle Picard, Neil Johnson, Austin Rosenbaum, Ronald Salas, and Steve Hansen.

For the girls, the winning crimson team included LR graduates Brenna Salque, Jocelyn Moore, Brianna Salas, Alanna Epperson, Janessa Morin, Moyatat Bell-Bart, Val Vargas, and Dominique Pleasants. The white team was made up of Miranda Salas, Roweena St. Pierre, Tiffany Adkins, Casey Moore, Riley Epperson, Keya Fasthorse, Kim Vargas, Melissa Mesa, and Lachelle Bearcub.
