The Shippensburg Raiders are a collegiate inline hockey team based in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. The Raiders represent Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania and are a recognized club sport. Currently the Raiders are governed by the National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association. The Raiders compete in the Eastern Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (ECRHA) at the Division II level.

Franchise historyEdit

The Raiders began play in the 2002-2003 season as members of the Eastern Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (ECRHA). Brian Beck and Bob Choate founded the club with the goal of competing in the NCRHA. From the time the Raiders entered the league they have performed consistently well. The Shippensburg Roller Hockey Club has strong recruiting ties to Bucks County, Chester County and Delaware County. Bucks, Delaware and Chester Counties are all located just outside of Philadelphia.

Shippensburg currently plays Home games in Lemoyne, PA at the Susquehanna Sports Center. The Raiders have performed very well at home, posting a winning record. Currently the Raiders enjoy a 20-9-2 mark at home, only posting a 4-5-2 record at home last season.

In the first season competing in the ECRHA, the Raiders finished 3rd in the southern conference, qualifying for the playoffs. After getting shut out by Vermont 4-0, the Raiders fell to Cornell 6-4, eliminating the Raiders from the playoffs. One year later, The Raiders won their Round Robin Pool, posting a 4-2 win over Hofstra, and a 6-3 win over Wentworth to advance to the Quarter-Finals. SUNY Brockport ended the playoff run with a 6-3 win in the QF. The Raiders would then be selected to attend the NCRHA National Championships, were they had a respectable showing before losing in the first round to Texas-Dallas 8-4.

The 2004-2005 season was viewed by many as a rebuilding year for the franchise, however, a strong group of freshman put together a strong season. For the third straight year the Raiders qualified for the Regional Playoffs, this time meeting West Chester and Wentworth in the Round Robin. After two ties, the Raiders advanced to play Hofstra in the Quarter-Finals. After falling behind 6-2, the Raiders fought back to force overtime, before succumbing to the Pride 7-6. In 2005-2006, the Raiders looked to continue their surge as a regional power, clinching a playoff bid for the fourth straight year. Sadly, for the fourth straight year the Raiders lost in their first elimination game 6-3 to the University of Maine.

The 2006-2007 campaign was the worst on record for Shippensburg, fighting through injuries all season long. After a late season tie against Temple, the Raiders found themselves in the playoffs. After defeating Vermont 6-4 in the first round, the Raiders came within one goal of a monumental comeback against Stony Brook, the eventual Regional and National champions, before dropping a heartbreaking game 6-5. Even with their 5th consecutive Quarter-Final exit in the playoffs, the Raiders made the trip to the national championship tournament before being ousted by San Diego 3-2.
