Marion Football Earns First Playoff Win Since 2014

MARION — The Marion Wildcats earned their first postseason victory since 2014 after beating Rich East in the first round of the IHSA Class 5A football playoffs Saturday.

Marion has made the playoffs the last 14 years, but as head coach Kerry Martin said on the Saturday Sports Show before his team’s victory, the Wildcats are looking to make noise in the postseason this year.

Marion will hit the road for the second round of the Class 5A playoffs. They will travel to Joliet to take on Joliet Catholic Academy on Saturday at 5 p.m..
