TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - This time last week, the Maclay boys soccer team was celebrating a State Championship, the program's fifth overall.

On Thursday, the Marauders celebrated that State title with their peers, as the school held a ceremony to recognize the athletes.

Head Coach Andy Warner said he's still taking in this newest title, and said the support has been tremendous and he couldn't be more grateful.

"We talk about community, and people like to be on winning teams, but when you analyze wining and you look at what it means, it's the people that matter and it's the players that matter," he said. "I think they've connected with our school and our community. Within the school, everybody knows these boys, they've been interactive with the boys, going to lower school, so it really made the sports program part of the school program."

The Championship is the first for the boys soccer program since 2004.
