The Marauders are 6-1 and have district wins over Chiles, Leon and Lincoln, reminding everyone of their continued prowess

Numbers don’t lie. Maclay’s lacrosse team is having a stellar start to its season, seven games in.

The Marauders, a team with a 48-game district win streak and six consecutive district titles prior to last year’s 4-14 season, is bouncing back.

“Last year was just rough because we were super young,” junior Sam Chase said. “We were starting three eighth-graders and we didn’t have many subs.
