This past weekend three Lady Raiders Swimmers and Divers along with three Raider Wrestlers advanced in their respective sports to the next round of the IHSAA tournament.
Ana Hewitt will be representing the Lady Raider Divers in the Jasper Regional on Tuesday which will be streamed here: Jasper Diving Regional
When asked about her accomplishment, Ana commented, “I am very proud of our team. We worked really hard during our season and put our best effort into every meet. I’m thrilled for Claire and Adi to be going to state, and I am very excited to be moving on to Regionals.”
Adi Luker and Claire Hentrup will be representing the Lady Raider Swimmers in this weekend’s IHSAA State Finals with Luker winning two events in the sectional and Hentrup one.

When asked about advancing, Claire noted, “Last year, when I got 2nd place in the 50 free at sectional it was very upsetting. That made me more motivated than ever to win this year. I am so happy to be heading to state and to know that all my hard work over the past year has paid off and that I finally have reached my lifelong goal. I’m also very excited that Adi will be joining and and that Ana is going to the Regional.”
Adi is making her second trip to state and said, “Last year I was living my dream by qualifying for state, and I am still currently living that dream. I set high goals for myself coming into this season. COVID did have its affects but it’s all about being positive. Not only getting two PR’s but also qualifying in both events has met my satisfaction, and I can’t be any more excited to have Claire joining me on the journey along with Ana in the Regional.”
These three Raiders have accomplished a tremendous amount this season and Raider Nation is proud of you and wish you luck tomorrow and this weekend!
In addition to these Lady Swimmers and Divers, we also wanted to congratulate three Raider Wrestlers on their accomplishments over the weekend. Reid Schroeder brought home a second place finish at Saturday’s Regional at Bloomington South while both Tanner Kane and Cayden Andrews brought home third place finishes.
This group will need two wins to punch their ticket to the State Finals held at Conseco Fieldhouse.
GOOD LUCK THIS WEEK and GO RAIDERS!
