GREENFIELD — By bringing the Hancock County Tournament trophy back to Fortville Saturday night, Mt. Vernon’s latest core of four took the first step toward creating its own legacy.

Three years after the senior quartet of DeArmond Davis, PJ Hubert, Jake Stafford and Daniel Turner paced the Marauders to a sectional title and a regional final berth, the black-and-gold’s latest fearsome foursome of Anthony Burnett, CJ Coleman, Stephen Turner and Dan Werner earned their first piece of hardware in their second season of playing together.

After keeping New Palestine to its lowest point total in nearly two years during Saturday morning’s semifinals, 3A No. 2 MV delivered another stifling defensive performance against Greenfield-Central in the championship game, holding to the Cougars seven made field goals in a 51-20 triumph.

“This is kind of the first one for them. It’s their own championship,” said seventh-year MV coach Steve Lynch of Burnett, Coleman, Turner and Werner. “I was happy for them to get something and add to the Mt. Vernon program.”
