  • Wildcats win Sectional opener

    The Mount Vernon Baseball team jumped out to an early lead on Evansville Bosse and captured a 15-2 victory last Wednesday at Braun Stadium, on the University of Evansville campus.

    With 11 runs in the first three innings, the Wildcats left no doubt about the eventual outcome.

    An RBI single by Hunter Murphy, a two-run single by Bryce Wilson, an RBI single by Bryce Krizan, and a three-run single by JD Collins in the second inning helped Mount Vernon put some runs on the board early.

    Bryce Wilson racked up three RBIs on one hit for the Wildcats.

  • Wildcats headed to State

    The Regional for Boys and Girls Track was held last week, and runners from Mount Vernon will be headed to Bloomington for the State Meet.

    Mount Vernon defeated Bosse 18-1 in the first round of the Sectional at Boonville.

    Sadie Hobbs, Brooklyn Gibbs, and Haylee Ford each had two hits.

  • Keitel and Fisher advance in Tennis Sectional

    Amanda Marshall was defeated by Lauren Marx in number one singles, 6-0, 6-1. Roni Inkenbrandt fell to Alexa Elpers in number two singles, 6-0, 6-0. Baylee Willman was defeated by Anna McAtee in number three singles, 6-3, 6-2.

    Hensley singled in the first, third, and sixth innings.

    Walker Paris was in control on the hill. Paris gave up just three hits, allowed no earned runs, walked one and struck out five during his five innings of work.
