After losing its season opener to Holy Cross, Newman has responded with three consecutive wins.

The latest was a 58-47 victory in Metairie over Archbishop Rummel at the Raider Gym Monday night.

The Greenies led at every interval, taking a 16-9 lead after one quarter before leading 28-22 at the half. After Rummel rallied to take the lead midway through the third quarter, Newman surged back ahead 40-34 by the end of the quarter and pulled away late for a solid road win.

The loss was the first for the Raiders after three straight wins to open the season.

Both teams return to action Wednesday in the CYO Tournament beginning at various sites.
