MC Leaps to a D6 Championship Victory

Abby Blazavich & Ella Gaston

Our Marion Center Varsity Girls’ team leapt in the District 6 2A title game at Mount Aloysius College on Leap Day. With the final score of the game being 58-44, the Marion Center Girl’s Varsity basketball team brought the victory home, just as we had told them to. This is the first time we made it this far since the District 6 Titles won in 2010 and 2011, which Coach Amy Trimble played on the team.

Eager students took the pep busses to the game, and the student section cheered loudly and proudly throughout the game. Green and gold filled the student section, from jerseys to hoodies- and even face paint. Eighth-grader Ryanna Muama told The Stinger,

“The game was a great experience. I really enjoyed watching it and I had a great time getting to watch the girls win.”

Ryanna was not the only one with that sort of experience, Senior Austin Safxield told The Stinger, “The Marion Center Stingers girl’s basketball team winning the championship game was absolutely thrilling! It meant so much to everyone there. The energy in the arena was electric, and seeing the players give it their all was truly inspiring. It was a celebration of teamwork, determination, and love for the sport. The girls played their hearts out at the game. I gotta give it to coach Amy and Travis because if it wasn’t for them putting them through the hard practices they had in order to go to the District 6 Championships game, they wouldn’t have been able to win the game on Thursday. Good job girl, let’s go and win states now.”

At the end of the first quarter, both teams were tied with 12 points. At halftime we took the lead, making the score 26-21. Then in the third quarter, 31-21. Then for the fourth and final quarter 58-44. Senior Lydia Miller led the girls with 12 points, followed by her Freshman sister, Macie Miller, and Freshman Alivia Ruddock,  with 10 points each.

If you see any of the girls in the halls, make sure to congratulate them on the big win. Next, the girls will go into the state bracket to compete for the title of PIAA State Champions.
