CMR Girls Win First Game, Get 'Monkey off Back'

Posted: Updated:

The CMR Rustlers girls basketball team is heading into their first cross-town game of the season with some momentum after beating Butte for their first win on Saturday.

The Rustlers (1-6) had a double digit lead at the half against the Bulldogs then had to hold on for the 73-70 win. The players and coaches say the victory helped get a huge monkey of their backs... and some much needed confidence heading into their showdown on Tuesday with 6-1 Great Falls High. The win was also the first under head coach Brian Crosby, who has seen a difference in his team in the few days since.   

"Close doesn't always count, everybody pays attention to the wins and losses so just to get that win was big for our kids and our confidence and they can just feel a big weight lifted off their shoulders," Crosby says. "They are a lot looser, even today, and ready to come to work and excited to play,"

Senior Ashlee Atchison credits the win to great team work.

"It was amazing, everybody was super excited, we all worked really hard for it. Everybody contributed, it was great, great team work," Atchison says.

The Rustlers will try to put together their first winning streak of the season by beating Great Falls High on Tuesday. Tip-off at CMR is scheduled for 7:30.
