After starting out the season 0-6, the Raider boys basketball team at Frontenac has picked up three straight victories, including two last week to take home Craw-Kan "Your Community Technology Partner" Team of the Week honors.
Frontenac, who plays in 4A-II, defeated 4A-I Louisburg on Tuesday (60-47) before dominating St. Paul on Friday, 63-33. The Raiders three straight victories started with a win against LaCygne-Prairie View (69-50)on the road on January 5th. They are undefeated since 2018 began.
The Raiders, as a full-team had less than a week of practice together to begin the season, because of playing in the 4A-II state title game in football in late November. Five of their six losses also came to schools much larger than FHS, some schools even having an enrollment more than five times of Frontenac from the state of Missouri.
Frontenac, who made it to the state tournament under then first year head coach Ryan Varsolona last year, will be back in action with the Kansas National Guard Tournament this week as they take on Riverton in the first round on Thursday.
