While we await the return of spring sports, we invite you to meet some of our LCSD 55 senior spring student-athletes. Our Raiders have taken some time to answer questions to allow us to learn more about them. We are proud of these student-athletes’ preparations and commitment to their teams. Please meet our first spring senior student-athlete, Elijah “Brooks” Nelson.

What does being apart of Raiders Athletics mean to you?
Raider athletics goes deeper than sports, it goes beyond the box score at the end of the game; it cuts deeper than that. Raider athletics helps each and every teammate find their voice on either the field, court or gymnasium. Being apart of Raider athletics helped me (as well as others) create bonds with people that started off as just teammates to a band of brothers (or sisters) that will do whatever it takes to help each other through every endeavor on and off the field.
Is there anyone you would like to thank for helping you during your athletic career?
My parents for always supporting me with whichever sport I chose to pursue. My coaches for giving up their free time after school for practices, transporting players to games, picking out awesome places to eat dinner and etc.
