Mtn Grove sweeps All-SCA baseball honors

Mountain Grove brought home its first state championship last week, so it's no surprise the Panthers cleaned up on the All-SCA postseason baseball team with senior DJ McNew named Player of the Year and Derwin McGownd earning Coach of the Year honors.  Ace Alex Moore, who pitched 10 spectacular innings in the final four, was one of just two 1st team pitchers.
