After a slow sports week because of semester exams, a number of Warwick teams are back in action this weekend.
I'll be blogging from Blacksburg on Friday and Saturday; 11 athletes from the indoor track team will be competing in the Virginia Tech Invitational.
The boys and girls basketball teams host Gloucester on Friday night. In their last meeting back in December, the boys lost 61-55 despite 24 points from Breven Lyons and a season-high 14 from LJ Carney. Since that game, the Raiders have lost 9 of 11 and 5 straight. The ladies beat Gloucester 57-18 to kick off an 11-game winning streak. The Lady Raiders have won 11 of 13 since that December 14th matchup.
In possibly the biggest event of the weekend, the boys and girls swimming teams will be competing at the Peninsula District Championships on Saturday at Midtown Community Center. The meet begins at 9am.
Best of luck to all Raiders athletes competing this weekend!
