Junior Mycah Clay looks for a pass.

While the weather was unseasonably cold, the Mavericks burned it up on the fields and in the courts in their games against the St. Andrew’s Crusaders of Austin.

Girls’ soccer won 6-0 on Friday, Feb. 2, securing their tenth consecutive win since November. The players took the field at 5 p.m. on Caven Field, looking to maintain their perfect winning streak.

Caven Field was the place to be that night as later that evening, boys’ soccer won their game 2-0. Despite the bitter weather and forceful winds, friends and family came out to support the Mavs after their two previous losses. Fans cuddled up in thick coats and blankets, while players from the JV teams sat on the sidelines in solidarity against the Crusaders and the cold.

Across campus, both girls’ and boys’ basketball took on the Crusaders in Liu Court. The girls’ took the court first, and lost 27-32. Sophomore Eliza Holt hit a buzzer-beater shot right before halftime. Holt and sophomore Gabby Perkins made several three-pointers throughout the game.

“We need to work at keeping the intensity up the entire time,” junior Mycah Clay said. “We’re looking forward to seeing all our hard work pay off at SPC.”

The boys’ basketball team won 62-44. The indoor game also brought out many spectators to support the Mavs.

All four teams will compete in SPC later this month. The tournament begins Thursday, Feb. 15 and will take place here in Houston.
