Broadie & Huber

TAJAE BROADIE, Class of 2022, has helped to lead the Blue Raiders to a 8-0 start, averaging 15.5ppg and 7.3 rpg, while shooting ~68% from the FT line. Elected as a captain by his peers, he has provided stout defense on the backend and allowed his teammates to take chances and employ a defense that has held every opponent under 50 points thus far.

Taj made the Honor Roll Q1 and currently is on track to complete the 2nd quarter on the honor roll again, an outstanding accomplishment. A quiet leader, Tajae has been a force on the court and in our locker room, with the ability to change the outcome of a game with both his words and actions.

We chose ADDISON HUBER, Class of 2025, as our Student Athlete of the Month. As a freshman, Addie was selected 1st Team Capital Division All-Star for volleyball, and as Pennlive’s 1st Team All-Star for volleyball as well. She was the league leader in kills. On the basketball court Addie serves as the point guard for the Lady Raiders this season, and is thriving on both ends of the court. She averages 16 pts per game, a total so far of 32 assists, and is shooting an astounding field goal percentage of 40.4%. In addition she is racking up stats in rebounds, steals, blocks, and charges. Addie is also one of the league leaders in three point shots made with 25.

Addie has a bright future on the courts, but an even brighter one off. She has a contagious smile, laugh, and personality. She has a fun competitive spirit, works hard on and off the court, is unselfish, and is determined to do whatever it takes to help her team.

Faith Matter and Tate Leach

 , Class of 2022, was chosen as player of the year for the Mid-Penn Capital Division this year. She tallied 15 goals and 20 assists in our 20 games and helped us to a 12-6-2 record and district playoff appearance. Her leadership and impact though go well beyond the stat line as she is a relentless worker. She can be seen sprinting back to help on defense just as quickly as she sprints forward to get involved in the attack. And she does it all with a huge smile on her face, evidence she loves playing with her teammates and friends here at Middletown.  ~ Coach Tim Neff

TATE LEACH, Class of 2022, continues to be a staple in our program and has a tremendous 5 week run, not only on the field but off. His leadership is unmatched and his ability to get maximum potential out of his teammates is phenomenal. Tate is instrumental in leading us to the District III playoffs as a safety and quarterback. He continues to impress with his skills and work ethic. He prepares the right way and makes sure his teammates are in the right spot at all times. I think what I am most proud of Tate is the fact that his classroom success has stayed consistent throughout the entire month. His grades are very solid, even with balancing football and basketball workouts. When he is not in the classroom, or on the field, he is certainly in the gym getting ready for the next season. His gears never stop and he continues to make Middletown a better place!  ~ Coach Scott Acri

Athletes of the MonthWILL FULMER, Class of 2023, is the first Raider in the past decade to putt his way to the District level. Fulmer discovered his love for golf in his own backyard by hitting balls with his dad when he was a kid. When he entered high school he was excited to finally get to play competitively and it didn't take long for his Coach to discover that those backyard lessons were a great investment. Districts will be held on October 8 & 9. We're routing for you, Will!

MADELINE FOX, Class of 2024, has really excelled in her role as Middle Blocker on the volleyball team. In the beginning of the season, Maddie wasn’t playing very aggressively and was tipping or throwing in roll shots to play it safe so she wouldn't make an error. As the season progressed, Coach Huber challenged her to step up and be another offensive threat on the floor and she started playing a lot more aggressively. Thanks to all of her hard work, Maddie leads the team in stats for her kills/blocks on the season. She has always been one of the quietest players on the court, but you can see her starting to come into her own. That smile says it all when she turns to her team after a kill or a block.
