The Mount Vernon Softball team looked to improve off last years season with many starters returning to the team. The team finished with a final record of 12-11 and a Big 8 conference record of 1-5.
The team peaked at the right time, however, as they made sectional championship. The Softball team routed Bosse 16-2 in the first round and narrowly defeated Boonville 2-1 by a walk-off homerun by Ellen Denning.
They came up short in the Sectional Championship as they were defeated by eventual State Champions Gibson Southern.
