Fast facts: She likes to write stories and express her thoughts through writing, and her favorite subject is English. Mounts would like to be a physical therapist because she wants to help people and be around athletics. Her highlight last season was striking out 15 in beating Lakewood Ranch for the first time in her career. Mounts says her dad, Rocky, has been the most inspirational person in her life because he got her started in softball and kept pushing her to be the best.
