Rising 9th grade parents: RAC the "Ravenwood Athletic Club", supports all 23 RHS sports programs comprised
of nearly 600 student athletes. Many of these teams compete at the state and national levels to bring recognition
to our school and community. This includes many capital projects supporting sports, such as the upcoming weight
room expansion, concessions support, bleachers, field maintenance equipment, athletic web-sites, school spirit
extras and much more. We raise money for these athletic improvements with our annual golf outing/silent auction
and raffle as well as other fundraising efforts. If you are parent of an RHS student athlete and would like to join our
efforts in framing the future of Ravenwood Athletics please contact Andrea Blair [email protected] or RHS Athletic
Director Danny Borne [email protected] We are looking for board members, committee chairs and help for the
