(1-6-20) The Mercer County League’s first report for the 2020 portion of the season. The start of the MAC schedule will now kick in full force and it will help to determine who wins the MCL title in 2019-20.

Did you know…

All six Mercer County League girls teams play each other once during the 2019-20 season. Not the case on the boys side, Celina does not schedule Ft. Recovery or Parkway. The last time we can verify that Celina and Parkway played was during the 1970-71 season, Celina beat Parkway 83-48. Celina and Ft. Recovery have played in the past, the last we can find was during the 1945-46 season when Celina beat the Indians 39-28.

The Bulldogs, who competed in the Asset Allocation tournament this season will play St. Henry and Coldwater twice and Marion Local once.

In SSN’s MCL play over the last two seasons, Parkway (boys), who went 0-4 in 2018-19,  won its first MCL game beating Coldwater this past Fruday night 65-49. Parkway girls picked up their first win this season over Celina 42-33, they went 0-5 last season.

Celina boys still have not won a MCL game since the start of the SSN MCL and currently stands at 0-7 over the past seasons, the Celina girls beat Parkway last season for their only MCL win and presently stand at 0-5 this season.

St. Henry boys who went 6-1 last year and won the MCL crown, the Redskins are 3-1 this year for an overall record of 9-2.

Why the MCL?

To add a little extra excitement to the high school basketball season SSN again will bring you the Mercer County League.

The first year SSN introduced the (mythical) MCL was in 2018-19.

All six Mercer County high schools are included, actual head to head match-ups between the schools that will determine a MCL champion in both boys and girls basketball.
