DES MOINES — Karly Cochrane was sick of second.

Second at state volleyball — twice. Second at state track.

“I was so sick of it,” she said. “To finally get what we deserve, it’s a great feeling.”

Mount Vernon-Lisbon racked up five event titles Saturday, sweeping the final three events, and won the Class 3A girls’ title going away at the state track meet at Drake Stadium. The self-proclaimed Mermaids tallied a 3A-record 98 1/4 points. Dubuque Wahlert was second with 78.

“It’s really amazing,” said Courtney Kintzel, who anchored Mount Vernon-Lisbon to a surprise win in the 400-meter relay that wrapped up the crown.

Mount Vernon-Lisbon won Saturday’s first two events — Shelby Kintzel, Rose Tepper, Courtney Kintzel and Karly Cochrane captured the sprint medley relay in 1:49.48, then Alex Wilson dominated the 800-meter run in 2:17.00.

That erased the 8 3/4-point lead with which Wahlert entered the day, and MV-L stayed in front the rest of the day.

Wilson triggered the final push by winning the 1,500 in 4:48.91. She did it in the heat of the day.

“I hate the heat,” she said. “I’d rather be running in the rain. I really didn’t think I’d win it. I did it for the team.”

Then came the clincher: Jessie Binsfield, Rose Tepper, Bree Rehder and Courtney Kintzel won the 400 relay in 50.07. The quartet was seeded 12th after regionals.

“I got the baton in the lead, and I was not going to let those other girls beat me,” Kintzel said.

Wilson, Holly Salzbrenner, Kristin Canning and Cochrane took the final race in 3:55.98.

“It’s our day,” Canning said.

Oelwein’s Tashina McAllister became a double-winner, claiming the 100-meter dash in 12.55 seconds, 2/hundredths ahead of  Charles City’s Sarah Eggena.

“All weekend, my starts weren’t that great,” said McAllister, who also won the 400 hurdles Friday and finished third in the 100 hurdles Saturday.

“But I got stronger at the end, and that’s good. In the 100, I thought, ‘Did I get it?’ I didn’t know for sure.”

Benton Community, the 2007 and 2008 champion, finished third with 42 points.
