Today's Richmond Palladium-Item reports, "Mounsey was the Region H and Tri-Eastern Conference Player of the Year. He was 4-1 with a 1.91 ERA on the mound. The former Bulldog also batted .463 with 38 hits and 33 RBIs. He plans to major in sports medicine and continue his baseball career at DePauw University."

"They had the academic program that I wanted," Mounsey tells the newspaper. "And I met with the baseball coachessoftball.jpg and liked how they did things. They had the best of both things."

Meanwhile, Emily Bichler, a recent graduate of Wisconsin's Port Washington High School, has been named to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel all-area softball team. A pitcher, Bichler "led the Pirates to the WIAA Division 2 state semifinals, batting .583 with a team-high 15 RBI and two home runs," notes the newspaper. "She had a 16-7 pitching record and 1.10 ERA, allowing 98 hits and 20 walks with 218 strikeouts. Will play at DePauw in Indiana."
