On Monday, Feb. 6, the Marauders had their district playoff game against the Pensacola Catholic Crusaders Being the first game of the postseason, the team had a lot to prove, and with that, lots of pressure. The Marauders fought hard, but fell short of the win. The final score was 43-59, but despite their loss, they showed diligence and devotion, leaving their mark in their district tournament.

From the beginning, Maclay knew that Pensacola Catholic was a challenge that required complete focus and perseverance. Starting out strong, junior Lauren Guyer scored the first three points of the game. The battle continued after the Crusaders began to step up their game. At the end of the first quarter, the Marauders were down 9-22.

“We knew that it [the game] was going to be a rough battle, so we made sure to get hype and lock in.” L. Guyer said.

Not only was their practice what made them better, but the team’s chemistry helped them get through the tough night.

“[Our team's chemistry] is strong,” sophomore Molly McDonald said. “We all know each other's strengths and weaknesses and after all [of] our time spent together, we became a family.”

With their heads held high, the Lady Marauders learned and moved on from their loss.

“Even though we lost, we all got so much closer and are all on the same page for what to bring next season.” junior Journey Kramer said.

The score did not and could not define the team. Excited for next season, the Maclay girl’s basketball team can only grow and improve from here.
