2017 "DISTRICT MADNESS" – CLASS D PREVIEW
MENDON — Looking at regular-season records, Marcellus appears to be the favorite coming into the Class D girls’ district tournament this week at Mendon.
Mendon hopes to prove that theory false.
As any coach knows, records don’t really mean a whole lot in the postseason.
Mendon faces Burr Oak in tonight’s game at 7 p.m.
Colon and Howardsville Christian hook up in Wednesday’s 6 p.m. contests, while Marcellus gets the winner of the Mendon/Burr Oak clash in the second game that night at 7:30 p.m. The finals are Friday at 7 p.m. with the winner advancing on to regional play March 7 at Vicksburg against the Bellevue District champs.
“I would say that looking at records, Marcellus would probably be the forerunner. They have a solid program and a very good coach,” said Mendon coach Leasa Griffith.
“To be honest, I feel that it is going to depend on which team is on each and every night. No team can look past any of the others if they want to come out as district champion.”
If Mendon hopes to be the one hoisting the district trophy Friday evening it must continue to get stellar contributions from its three top players.
