The Marianna High School Bulldogs basketball team are district champs after soundly defeating Taylor County on the opposing Bulldogs’ court 72-58.  

The Marianna Bulldogs won every quarter starting with outscoring Taylor County 15-13 in the first quarter.  The Bulldogs taste for success kicked in at the start of the second quarter with 22 points appearing on the scoreboard.  Their defense held the opposition to 16 points, giving Marianna a 37-29 lead midway through the game.

Taylor County came out of the locker room ready to challenge the visitors for the championship.  They posted 15 points in the third period but Marianna was quick to answer with 17 points to take a 54-44 lead into the final quarter.  Marianna did not let up, outscoring Taylor County 18-14 to secure the win and the district championship.

Marianna was led in scoring by Jaeden Harley with 19 points, with Deontre Rhynes right on his heels with 18 points.  Anton Williams was also in double digits with 11 points.  Bringing in seven points each were Marquis Kelly and Nick Pollocks.
