(12-21-20) This past week was very busy in the MCL, two boys and two girls games were able to be played, which during this pandemic is a big accomplishment. Only Celina girls have not played an MCL game, they had their game with St. Henry cancelled earlier this month due to COVID 19.

Below in our look back you will see the 1940-41 Neptune Wildcats, included is a story from the Mercer County Chronicle and league standings.

Can you help us? Looking for any info on Washington Township (boys and girls) basketball over the years – you can forward pictures, details etc to – – we also invite you to forward any info from any Mercer County basketball team.

SSN’s Mercer County League

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.
