MOUNT VERNON — Molly Burnside found a little extra motivation Tuesday.

Sectionals can provide seniors with one more go-around on their home floor after Senior Night. Burnside, a Mount Vernon senior, took it upon herself to make that night memorable.

“Maybe I started to realize that this was it — this was the last time I’m going to play in front of these people,” Burnside said. “So, on my last shot, I wanted to go out with a bang, so I smashed it.”
