Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- April 2, 2010

The Lady Raiders fought their way to the Middlesex League co-championship, then captured the District 2-North crown, went on to take several other contenders before finally meeting Oliver Ames High in the state semi-finals, played at no less than the former "Boston Garden" -- now the "TD Garden". It was a very long row to hoe, and the Lady Raiders came THAT close. See more on-the-floor photos of the game, linked to this picture.
