Baxter, while at Norborne, was a Class 1 second-team all-state selection as a senior in 2012. As a freshman at the University of Nebraska-Omaha this past spring, she recorded a 4-1 record, working as the #2 pitcher on the Mavericks staff.

The 6 foot right-hander was named the CLAA Conference player of the year in 2012, gaining a record of 20-2. As a junior infielder in 2011, Cheyenne earned second-team all-state recognition. That season, the Lady Pirates finished 26-1.

In addition to her softball excellence, Baxter was a Class 1 all-state basketball player in her senior season, and also ran track for Norborne High School.

Coach Earleywine said that "getting a third pitcher was our top priority this offseason, and we're so thankful to have landed Cheyenne. Not only does she have great potential, but she's an in-state kid who will take great pride in playing at Mizzou".

After signing with the Tigers, Baxter said,
"I'm excited to come to Mizzou because I love the atmosphere in Columbia. Most of my family is made up of Mizzou alums, and it's basically been a dream of mine to play for Mizzou. I really like the coaching staff because they are some of the best in the nation. I think they will do a great job of bringing out my full potential"

Baxter will have three years of eligibility, beginning with the 2014-2015 season, at Missouri.
