The Dunkirk Lady Marauders host Olean on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. at Dunkirk High School. With a win, the Lady Marauders will clinch at least a share of the CCAA West 1 league title. At the game, Dunkirk will honor its five seniors — Jessica Beehler (pictured), Amari Carter, Kymi Nance, Nadara O’Dell and Olivia Smith. Dunkirk will also commemorate Nance’s 1,000-point milestone, with another senior closing in on the mark which could happen in the game. In addition, another of the five seniors will be finalizing a college commitment after the game. Dunkirk coach Ken Ricker described Saturday by saying, “I would find it hard to believe that there has ever been a bigger celebration of Dunkirk girls basketball than there will be [on Saturday].”
