Outlook: Macie Dungan and Kaylee Walkey spearheaded quite a 2013 season for Mt. Vernon, as the program broke New Palestine’s six-year stranglehold on the Hancock County Meet; notched runner-up finishes at the Hoosier Heritage Conference and Pendleton Heights Sectional Meets; and advanced to semistate for the seventh consecutive campaign.

Dungan, now a sophomore, and Walkey, a junior, were both newcomers to the Marauders last fall. After last season’s county triumph, longtime coach Bruce Kendall said Dungan, Walkey and fellow newbie Leah Chaves – a fixture in MV’s top five in 2013 – were just finding out how good they can be.
