CMB girls’ season ends Wednesday night
The Collins-Maxwell-Baxter girls basketball team was able to reach the Class 3A semifinals, but the Raiders’ run came to an end after a long road trip Wednesday night.
Driving all the way out to Wellman, the Raiders suffered a 59-39 loss to host Mid-Prairie to end their season.
Mid-Prairie took a commanding lead early, leading 19-4 after the first quarter, but the Raiders recovered in the second to trail just 26-18 at halfime. The second half was all Mid-Prairie, however, as it cruised 33-21 in the final two quarters to earn the victory.
CMB finished its season with an overall record of 9-15. Junior Abbie Haupert made the most of the postseason run, shattering the Raiders’ record for blocks in a season and career, as well as most career rebounds. Going into Monday, her season block total was 86 and her career block total was 86. The records were 30 and 44, respectively.
