The Raiders challenged Cowes Enterprise College from the United Kingdom in one of hundreds of battles, Fai-To, taking place in the the Mangahigh Fai-Tea.  The battles pitted U.S. schools vs U.K. schools in observance of the British Tea Laws that initiated the Boston Tea Party.  The Raiders won five straight rounds and took home their newest trophy, a coffee cup.  This trophy is a replica of the coffee cup used by Andrew Wiles, who finally proved Fermat’s Last Theorem in 1995, just over 300 years after the problem was first noted.


The Raider Cheerleaders traveled to South Burlington on Saturday to compete in the NVAC Cheerleading Competition. The 5/6 team took First Place in the Youth Division and the 7/8 took Third Place in the Middle School Division. Individual Medals were won by the 7/8 team in stunting, jumps and tumbling. Congratulations to the cheerleaders for representing SACS!
