Congratulations to the Benjamin E. Mays Lady Raiders as they advance to Macon for the Georgia High School Association State Championship after a 56-38 win over Dutchtown High School.
It’s been more than a decade since the Lady Raiders made an appearance in the State Championship. The last time was in 2003. They won the championship in a 49-44 overtime win over Hephzibah High School under the leadership of Coach Oliver Banks.
They will now have another opportunity to bring home a state championship victory as they go head-to-head with Stephenson, Friday March 6 at 7 p.m. at the Macon Coliseum, 200 Coliseum Drive, Macon, GA 31217.
Admission tickets are $12 and parking is $10 per car and $15 for buses and/or stretch vans.
Good luck to the Lady Raiders as they fight to bring home the state championship. Send them words of encouragement and wish them good luck @MaysAthletics.
