Mario emerged as one of the county's finest pitchers in 2018. He was named the District 15-9A pitcher of the year by and was selected second team All-Dade by the Miami Herald. His 13 starts tied a school record. In 2017, he split time between the varsity and JV and had a breakout performance 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.
