Unfortunately for Trimble, the wheels came off the Raider scoring machine in the final eight minutes of play and the visiting Demons left Bedford with a 67-52 win.<br /> Pretty in Pink http://www.mytrimblenews.com/content/pretty-pink <img src="http://www.mytrimblenews.com/sites/www.mytrimblenews.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/pink_cheerleader.jpg" alt="Olivia Seward and her cheerleading teammates were decked out in pink for last Friday&#039;s Hope for a Cure game benefiting the Trimble County Relay for Life." title="Olivia Seward and her cheerleading teammates were decked out in pink for last Friday&#039;s Hope for a Cure game benefiting the Trimble County Relay for Life." align="left" hspace="6" width="57" height="85" /> Lady Raiders win NCKC championship convincingly http://www.mytrimblenews.com/content/lady-raiders-win-nckc-championship-convincingly <img src="http://www.mytrimblenews.com/sites/www.mytrimblenews.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/bailey_1.jpg" alt="Bailey Duke scores on a runout during Friday night&#039;s win over visiting Owen County.
