He batted .463 with 38 hits, 33 RBIs and 29 runs," writes Myyon Barnes.

"He was the difference maker on the mound," says Centerville coach Mike Baumer. "Plus he hits pretty well, too."

The article notes the Mounsey also earned honors as Region H and Tri-Eastern Conference Player of the Year. He was also selected to play in the 2009 Indiana East-West All-Star Baseball Classic. "Mounsey plans to major in sports medicine and continue his baseball career at DePauw University.

"I think he can pitch for them. If not he can hit and play in the outfield," Baumer tells the paper. "He will fit in nicely for them."
