(WAOW) - Two straight seasons, the Marathon boys' basketball team finished with at least 20 wins, only to see it end in the sectional finals each time.

Marathon brought home its first gold ball since 1977. After winning each of their first five playoff games by an average of 22 points, the Raiders were in unfamiliar territory Saturday.

Tied at 41 with just over three minutes to play, the Raiders dug deep and put together a championship-worthy run.
