Cudos to Lisa Orr, a senior, and Missy Haas, a junior.

Both were named to the Berks II All-Division Team.

Now that March is breezing into the Tri County region, formal spring practice season has begun for the respective squads at Twin Valley including girls soccer, boys baseball, girls softball, boys volleyball, and boys and girls track.

All Raiders teams have their sights set on improved performances this season.

Expectations and preseason excitement are highest for the girls soccer team - loaded with talent - which advanced for the second straight season to the PIAA State spring tournament playoffs. They also finished as the county runner up to Conrad Weiser.

Nikki Keggereis, last year's Berks scoring leader, returns along with many experienced players from the 2000 squad.

The Raiders along with both Weiser and Wilson should be the premiere clubs in the Berks league this year.

In baseball, the Raiders are working to get back to the Berks playoffs. Last year marked the first season since 1993 that the Raiders were not in post-season action.
