Mario split time between the varsity and JV as a sophomore and will be part of the starting rotation this season. His best game was in the spring break tournament against an 18-1 Pace team. He pitched 4 2/3 innings of no-hit ball and would have taken his no-hitter into the sixth inning had it not been for the plate umpire missing a third strike right over the center of the plate. In the Tamiami league, Mario once pitched a 3-pitch inning and, in Nashville with his travel team, he once struck out the side on 9 pitches for his travel team.
