He also tied an OAC Tournament record with five hits in a single game and was named to the OAC All-Tournament Team.

Mary was a consensus first team All-American a season ago along with winning both the Mideast Region Pitcher of the Year and the OAC Pitcher of the Year awards after leading the conference with a 10-0 record and a 0.78 earned run average. His ERA was second-best in the nation.

Mount Union will open its season at Wooster on Feb. 25.
