Raiders win a tough one; mourn loss of former teammate Taylor Casey


It was a difficult week in the locker room for the Raider boys’ hockey team last week, but the Raiders channeled their grief over losing a former teammate into a 3-0 victory at Red Wing in Saturday.

Former Raider Taylor Casey was killed in a one-car accident near New Richmond on New Year’s Day. Casey, a 2012 Hudson High School graduate, was a forward on the team who helped the Raiders reach the WIAA regional semifinals his senior season.
