Lady Tankers go to State!

Roosevelt sent seven girls to the State Swim Meet on November 9. Congratulations to teammates Lauren Drake, Lydia Johnson, Alla Lamark, Cecile Lorenzen, Riley Mengel, Gabi Miller, and Kallie Von Der Linde.

The swimmers competed in two relays and five individual events. Cecile Lorenzen got 8th in the state for the 100 back and broke the record for the third year in a row at Roosevelt. Lydia Johnson broke the record in the 200 IM for Roosevelt and was 12th in the state for the 500 free.

Congratulations to the Rider team on a great season! 




Roosevelt football on the winning track

Under the direction of new football coach Mitch Moore, the Rough Riders have been creating havoc for their opponents on the gridiron. With the exception of Ankeny, Roosevelt has won all of its games. Ranked as high as 6th, the Riders are currently 8th in the state.

Next up for the Riders: October 18 @ Ankeny Centennial and October 25 against SE Polk at home (Drake Stadium). Come out and cheer your team on.

Plus, to celebrate this historic season, join the 2-week online team fundraising effort underway now for  Rider Club Football. 100% of donations go directly to the football program!

GO RIDERS!!!
