Raiders riding late-season momentum into 2013
They say, “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.” The 8-14 Raiders’ volleyball team had to cling to these words all through last season.
A shaky start to 2012 cost the Collins-Maxwell/Baxter volleyball team a shot at a winning season, but the way the team closed bodes well for the fall of 2013. The Raiders lost their first six matches of 2012, but a string of five victories in seven matches fueled an 8-8 finish that included a 3-2 victory over Prairie City-Monroe in the Class 3A regionals.
“The kids just started to gel really well. Their passing got a lot better,” CMB coach Scott Ranck said. “We had some medical issues with the team and were forced to make a few lineup changes. So, I kind of shuffled things around, and the girls responded really well.”
