Demonstrating the growth of Mount Vernon’s athletic program, more than 350 members of the School community gathered to celebrate the achievements of Middle School athletes. The purpose of the Middle School Athletic Banquet is to bring student athletes and their families together to celebrate hard work and achievement. It is also a great way to generate excitement for the Athletic Department and to build School pride.

Physical Education Coordinator, Scott Cain was the master of ceremonies, and throughout the evening he and the coaching staff recognized two stand out students from each sport. The MVP Award was given to the athlete who performed at the highest level on the field/court/mat. The Mustang Award went to the athlete who best exemplified what it means to be a Mount Vernon Athlete. He/She shows up and works hard every day, has a positive attitude, motivates teammates and does whatever it takes to add value to the squad.

Capping off the event, Jodi Martin was selected as Middle School Coach of the Year. Martin coached the girls sixth and seventh grade girls basketball team which went on to win the NAML Championship this season!

Provided below is list of Middle School MVP Award and Mustang Award winners for 2013-2014. Congratulations to all of our student athletes for an amazing year! Thank you to the Mustang Booster Club, Athletic Director, Mark Heiser, and Assistant Athletic Director, Patrick Coffield for their outstanding work supporting our athletes.
