RAIDER RETURN: CMS gets sweep at North after long break

Exactly four weeks.

That’s how long it has been since the Coffee Middle School Red Raider boys basketball team hit the floor due to COVID-19 quarantines and other various cancellations.

You couldn’t tell Thursday night in Decherd – the Red Raiders piled up 62 points to cruise to a 62-15 CTC win over North Franklin’s Gators.

The win improves the Raiders to 3-1 on the season and gives them 3 straight wins. They are 2-1 in conference play.

Meanwhile, the Lady Raiders of CMS got on the floor for the first time since a Nov. 19 loss to Lipscomb Academy.
