Mustangs roll on …

There’s no No. 1 jinx for the Mount Vernon volleyball team.

Two days after vaulting to the top of the Class 3A rankings, the Mustangs captured the championship of the Iowa City West Extravaganza.

The championship match was memorable: Mount Vernon (12-0) outlasted West (15-1), 26-24, 31-29.

It’s just September, but the match obviously meant a lot to the Mustangs, who won the tournament for the first time. Karly Cochrane for instance, leapt into her father’s arms after the team gathered for photos.

Mount Vernon and West meet again in the five-team round robin at the Cedar Rapids Kennedy tournament in a week. They play in the final round of the day.
