Mark Percy has been Iola High's only baseball coach since taking over in 2005. Even though COVID-19 forced this season to end without really starting, Percy is still ready to walk away.

No one can predict the future. If anyone knows that, it’s Mark Percy.

This season was supposed to be Percy’s last at the helm for Iola High baseball, closing out a 16-year career with the class that helped bring him a state championship in 2018. 

Aspirations of another title this year were cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to the cancelation of the spring sports season. Even though he never received his send-off season, Percy is still calling it quits.
