Saturday was a big day for the Lady Raiders. They combined their Ulcerative Colitis game and senior day into one. Both Havana and Midwest Central have personal ties to ulcerative colitis and wanted to honor past and present friends and family members who unfortunately know the affects of UC. Cade Duncan, a MCHS senior, threw the first pitch to his cousin and player, Karsyn Skaggs. The Lady Raiders also celebrated their five seniors: Jenna Bowman, Leah Boehm, Olivia Lewis, Kloe Norris, and Jaden Watts. Congratulations, ladies!
Come cheer Leah, Kloe, Jenna, Jaden, and Olivia to a victory today against Havana. This will be their Senior Day and Ulcerative Colitis game. The first pitch will be at 10:00. Senior recognition will start at 9:45. Good Luck Ladies!

The Lady Raiders defeated Midland 17-0 on Friday as two pitchers combined to throw a shutout. The Lady Raiders secured the victory with nine runs in the fourth inning. The big inning was thanks to singles by Grace Smith and Alexis Highland, groundouts by Jaden Watts and Carley Rose, an error on a ball put in play by Karsyn Skaggs and Isabella Passmore, and a walk by Taylor Keihn. Olivia Lewis and Isabella Passmore each collected three hits to lead the Lady Raiders. Isabella Passmore earned the win for the Raiders. The hurler went four innings, allowing zero runs on two hits, striking out 12 and walking zero. Jaden Watts threw one inning in relief out of the bullpen. Watts recorded the last three outs to earn the save.
Five students from the MCHS graduating class of 2022 have been designated Illinois State Scholars for their academic excellence. The Illinois Student Assistance Commission, the state's college access and financial aid agency, presents this important recognition of academic achievement to exceptional Illinois high school students annually. Illinois State Scholars represent the top 10 percent of high school seniors from 765 high schools across the state. Earning this distinction means the student has scored in the 95th percentile or above on the ACT or SAT, and ranks in the top half of the class. This year, more than 17,340 honorees join the other outstanding students who have been honored since the designation was first introduced in 1958. We are extremely proud of our Raiders for earning this recognition. Midwest Central High School recognizes the following five students: Shay-Le Roemer, Alexa Kerley, Tori Taylor, Jaden Watts, and Abigail Larsen.
