Mount Vernon High School scores new scoreboards
Spring sports are underway at local schools, and Mount Vernon High School recently ushered in baseball and softball season with the installation of two new scoreboards.
The electronic boards — installed March 22 — feature some new bells and whistles, including white LED lights and the ability to display 10-inning scores rather than just the overall score, said Monty Fritts, assistant director of student activities and head football coach at Mount Vernon. They also are larger than the previous scoreboards, which were installed in the early 1990's and required frequent maintenance.

Both Mount Vernon's varsity softball team and baseball team have home games against Thomas Edison High School March 29 at 6:30 p.m., for an opportunity to see the new scoreboards in action.
