MUNDY LEADS SOUTH GRANVILLE TO 2-A SOFTBALL SWEEP

    RALEIGH— Hunter Mundy hit a pair of home runs and drove in three runs on Saturday  to lead South Granville to a 4-3 victory over East Bend Forbush and a sweep of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A softball championship series at Dail Softball Stadium on the campus of N.C. State.
    South took both games in the best of three series, winning the opener on Friday night by outlasting Forbush 2-1 in 11 innings. 
    Mundy, a junior shortstop, was named the series Most Valuable Player.
    South took a 1-0 lead in the first with an unearned run and then a Mundy two-run homer made it 3-0 in the third. Forbush countered with a two-run shot by Allison Mitchell to cut it to 3-2.
    Mundy’s second homer, a solo shot, put South Granville ahead 4-2 and the Vikings held on to win.
    Erin Boone also had two hits for the winners, while Mitchell had two hits for Forbush. 
    The Vikings finished 25-2 and last won a state softball championship in 1998.  Forbush was in the finals for the first time since 2004 and has five previous state championships, including two when the sport was slow pitch. The Falcons ended 27-3..
