Melissa, I think this is a streak that goes back to a lost to Sandburg (In OT) back in 2005 just prior to them going to playoffs. I maybe wrong, is the only SWSC loss under Coach Smith. The Lady Raiders revenged that loss in elite 8 Game which they went on to get 4th place after a lost to Bartlett in final four and to who else Whitney Young in the 3rd place game. Good luck Lady Raiders for the rest of the Year.
