#TheSeason2021-22: Palatka

We are once again compiling #TheSeason recaps.

We will sweep through each district, one at a time, until all 100 teams are completed. The next district in rotation was 1A-District 4 and next random selection within that district was Palatka. Records are as compiled, with some adjustments made to account for discrepancies between our records and those reported to the district traditional tournament host.
