Senior Tiger Baseball Pitcher J.D. Mundt has committed to play baseball in college at the University of Louisville. He will be a preferred walk-on for the Cardinal Baseball team and chose the Cardinals over roster spots at Kentucky Wesleyan and Lincoln Memorial. Louisville is kind of good at that Baseball thing too. #2 in the nation isn’t too shabby.
Mundt will be going to the Cardinals a pitcher and is turning away the life of a swimmer. “Baseball has always been my first love,” said Mundt. “It has always been my dream to play college baseball. I received a few letters for swimming, but I knew that baseball is what I wanted to pursue.”
Mundt was a member of the 2014 Tiger Baseball State Championship Team that took home the title last spring for the first time since 1981.
He announced his decision via Twitter.
Senior Tiger Tennis player Brandon Lancaster has committed to play college tennis at the University of Louisville. Lancaster’s commitment comes before the beginning of his senior season and after his Individual State Championship this past spring.
Brandon has been a member of the Tiger Tennis team’s past three state championships during their current six year title streak. He announced his decision via Twitter.
Check back later for more coverage on Lancaster’s commitment.
Former Tiger Alex Gornet was born and raised a Louisville Cardinals fan, but now he is thriving as a member of the Cardinal Tennis Team. The 2011 and 2012 KHSAA State Tennis Runner-up follows in the footsteps of his father who played for UofL also and is about to lead his team into the NCAA Tournament today against Wake Forest in Columbus, OH.
As the only player from Louisville on the roster this year for the Cardinals, Gornet has been either the No. 3 or No. 4 singles player all season long, good for a 26-6 record. He is 16-3 in dual matches and 23-15 in doubles.
“I love my team, and I love being in my hometown because the support around here is great,” said Gornet. “I have friends who keep up with me, adults who I used to play with who keep up with me, and I don’t think I would get that kind of support in other cities or at other schools that are farther away.”
