The winning streak keeps getting bigger. Saturday, the Lady Raiders began a new chapter of their history, playing the first ever game inside the Libla Family Sports Complex. At the same time, they picked up right where they left off. They kept a tenacious defensive approach and combined it with torrid shooting in an 80-68 win against State Fair. The win is the 13th in a row for Three Rivers and their 20th of the season. It's Three Rivers' third consecutive 20-win season. After the game, Three Rivers coach Jeff Walk expressed how much Saturday meant to him. “I’ve never closed a gym out with a win and never won the first game in a new gym,” Walk said. “Tonight’s going to hold a special place in my heart.”
