The Mavs have faced an incredibly adverse season. They started the preseason a month late due to COVID-19 and couldn’t seem to catch a break from there. The team was quarantined twice throughout the season which lost about 30 days of training and games. Our Lady Mavs fought through by working hard at home to stay in shape, wearing masks often, sanitizing equipment, adjusting the date of Senior Night, and staying positive and flexible through each necessary change.
After a week of hard play defeating Lafayette Jeff and Logansport, the Mavs faced their rival Harrison. In the first few minutes, the Raiders landed a penalty kick for a foul in the box. The half ended with the Raiders leading 3-0. As usual, the Mavs didn’t let up. They fought the next 40 minutes with simplicity, assertiveness, and efficiency. The Mavs were defeated with honor with a final score of 0-5. They may have been defeated, but they made the Raiders fight for it.
This was an amazing season, and this team deserves to be proud. Congratulations on 2nd place, Mavs!
