The Mount Vernon Wildcat cross country teams held their banquet Monday night to give awards and letters to the qualified runners. The cross country teams had solid seasons and ran their best this season.
The boys cross country team placed fourth in the Big Eight Conference and ended up eighth at the sectional meet at USI. The Most Valuable Player award was given Monday to junior Dane Wilson. Wilson led the boys’ team this year and was very valuable to the teams success. Wilson was also named to the Big Eight all conference team as well.
The other award given out for the boys team Monday was the Most Improved runner award. This award was given to the runner that has shown the most improvement, Senior Brandon Roy.
The girls’ team had a great year as well. The Wildcat girls runners ended up fourth in the Big Eight Conference and placed sixth in the sectional meet, just one place away from advancing to the Regional cross country meet.
The girls team was led by sophomore Toni Waddell who placed first overall at the USI sectional meet, being crowned Sectional Champion. Waddell went on to have a very strong showing in the Regional meet and ran well at Semi-State as well.
