Lady Tigers are State Champions

Mount Vernon Lady Tigers basketball teamFor the first time in school history, the Mount Vernon Lady Tigers basketball team are the 3A State Champions.

“It sure is a lot different finishing in first place than finishing third last year,” Coach Brad Floyd said. He said that defeating Brock was a big step since they are a perennial power, and being able to shut them down was a testament to the Lady Tigers’ defense.
