Lady Marauders return all five senior starters
OBSERVER Staff Report
The Dunkirk Lady Marauders have a luxury this season that not many teams in high school sports can claim: Dunkirk returns all five starters from a year ago. Not only do all five starters — Jessica Beehler, Kymi Nance, Amari Carter, Nadara O’Dell and Olivia Smith — return this season, but they’ve been playing together at the varsity level as starters since the 2017-18 season. That season, the Dunkirk Lady Marauders went all the way to the Section VI Class B1 title game at Buffalo State.
Dunkirk also returns with the same coach as a year ago, Ken Ricker, who is looking to run at a higher pace than ever before. With so much continuity this season, Dunkirk has high hopes of making another playoff run.
