When Marion County kicked off the 20th District tournament last season, they were 21-6 and riding the most wins in school history since 2002. And they were the No. 1 seed in the district tournament.
This season, with several key players of last year’s squad gone due to graduation, Marion County has a 12-15 record, enduring a four-game losing streak and two five-game losing streaks.
