The recipe for success for the 6th grade CCMS Lady Raider basketball team has been run their offense and play tenacious defense. On Tuesday night, the Lady Raiders used that combination together better than they have all year long in a 48 to 12 win over Harris Middle. Coffee County held Harris to no more than 4 points in each quarter as eight different Lady Raiders scored baskets. Bella Vinson was the high scorer on the night as she dropped 22 while Keri Munn continued her dominant post play with 8 points. Reagan Ellison came off the bench for 5 points and Amelia Prater added 4 points.

The boys were just as dominant in their contest as they beat the Harris boys 30 to 11. The Red Raiders held Harris to just 1 free throw and 1 field goal in the second half with their strong defense. On offense, Jaxon Vaughn scored 11 points while Trenton Scrivnor added 8 points and Hayden Hullett scored 6.
The 6th grade teams conclude their season on Friday night as they travel to Morrison. The girl’s game will tip off at 6 PM.
