GREENFIELD — The curse of seven continues.
Mt. Vernon snapped New Palestine’s seven-year stranglehold on the Hancock County Meet Tuesday evening at Brandywine Park, returning the favor the Dragons bestowed on them 11 years ago.
There was no sophomore slump for NP’s Sarah Schwartz, however. A year after coming out of nowhere to win the individual title, Schwartz cruised to a repeat championship Tuesday evening. Schwartz finished in 20 minutes and 8.39 seconds, prevailing by 29 seconds.
