TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - The road to State begins this week for high school girls basketball teams in the Big Bend. 

The Maclay Marauders are back in the postseason this year, and played for a District title Thursday night against PK Yonge. Maclay fell 61-26, and will play on the road for the first round of Regionals.

The Maclay girls soccer teams plays a tough St. Johns Country Day squad on Friday night in Regional Semifinal action. St. Johns has won six straight State Championships, but the Marauders not backing down - they are ready for a fight.

"To get a win over them, you'd have to do everything really well and you'll need some lucky bounces along the way," said Maclay coach Paul Dickson. "We seek them out so we can see what the best looks like and experience it instead of reading about them or whatever, we like to play against them. We're going to show up and we're going to compete on Friday."

The North Florida Christian boys basketball team hosted Liberty County Thursday and picked up the 86-55 win on senior night.
