Yellow Jacket Stadium hosted its only high school event of the season on Saturday when 10 schools took part in the 33rd annual Mount Vernon Rotary Yellow Jacket Relays.

Mount Vernon established a new school record in the pole vault. Madi Phillips became the first Yellow Jacket to jump 11 feet. Sadie Brass added to the team score with an 8-foot jump, and Julia Staten jumped 6-foot-6. Their team, however, came second to Midpark.
