The Lake Roosevelt Raider boys' basketball team defeated Waterville but lost to Soap Lake last week, finishing their season at 3-13, seventh out of the nine teams in the Central Washington 2B league.

Last Thursday the Raiders traveled to Waterville, where they defeated the Shockers 52-45.

"We played good as a team, knocked down shots, and played a complete game," Head Coach Levi Seekins said. "It was good to see a lot of the work we've been doing pay off."

"A lot of our guys stepped up," Seekins continued. "We played good defense as a team. We put ourselves into good positions to take clear shots and we made them take tough shots."

On Saturday the Raiders went to Soap Lake where they lost to the Eagles, 57-50, in what was the Raiders' last game of the season.

"We couldn't keep them off the offensive glass," Seekins said. "When we didn't turn the ball over we were pretty efficient. It was just turnovers and offensive rebounds that hurt us, other than that we played pretty well. They made the plays, and we didn't."

With the season over, Seekins said of his first year coaching the team, "It was my honor and privilege to be able to coach those guys."
