City of Racine Mayor John Dickert will read a special proclamation on Tuesday, December 10, 2012, during the Common Council meeting declaring Monday, December 10, 2012, as "Racine Raiders Day" in the City of Racine. The proclamation will be read at Racine City Hall (730 Washington Avenue), room 205, at 7:00 p.m. CT.
This will be in recognition of the accomplishments of the 2012 Racine Raiders organization. The team finished the season with a 15-1 record and went 11-0 in the Mid-States Football League (MSFL). The Raiders won the MSFL championship.
The Raiders then participated in the Midwest Football Tournament, beating the Ironman Football League champion Wauwatosa Spartans and winning the tournament championship. The Raiders then hosted the Nashville Storm, winners of the National Football Association championship, for the Semi-Pro BCS National Championship, which the Raiders won 38-24 in front of nearly 3,500 fans.
The national championship was the eighth in the 60-year history of the Raiders but the first since 2001.
