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.
