The State Oral Interp participants were Bobby Beach Pattison and Becca Glanzer.
They received superior ratings in two out of three events, which led to Mount Vernon receiving a State Oral Interpretation Team Excellence Award. The oral interp coach is Mrs. Bertsch.
Mikayla Weiss was chosen as an All-State Honorable Mention for Class A Volleyball. Congratulations, Mikayla.
