The Mid-Prairie boys and girls basketball teams were swept at home Monday by the Williamsburg Raiders in a non-conference doubleheader. The Golden Hawk girls fell in a tight game 48-47. Williamsburg was hot early, hitting five threes in the first quarter, opening up a 21-7 lead. The Hawks battled back in the second quarter going on a 20-5 run that lasted the entire frame to take a 30-26 lead into the break. Out of the half, Mid-Prairie stretched that lead to as large as 12. The Raiders would have the last run however, and it was big enough to get the job done. Williamsburg closed on a 16-6 sprint that spanned the entire fourth quarter, the dagger was a Taylor Busch three pointer, her fifth of the night with 20 seconds left that would put the Raiders up one, their first lead since the first half. Mid-Prairie had a pair of possessions in the final 15 seconds, but turnovers did not allow them to get off a shot. Maddie Nonnenmann led the Hawks with 14 points, Myah Lugar had 13. With the loss, Mid-Prairie is now 3-6 on the year.
