COLUMBUS – Central Community College is currently battling injuries to three starters, but kicked off the Ramada Classic on a high note.

Raider Head Coach Mary Young says, “We started off the day with a good team win over Williston State with all players on our team contributing in the win.”
“In our last match, we ran into a confident KCK squad that played with a ton of confidence and we weren’t able to get into a good rhythm and struggled at the net offensively. We’ll regroup and hopefully find consistency in our play.”

The Raiders battled close in all 3 dropped sets, and dominated in their lone win 25-13.
