Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

It was not so much a WPIAL title hangover that did Mount Pleasant in, but rather too little, too late as the Vikings were unable to overcome a deficit in their PIAA first-round game. Four days after winning its first WPIAL title, Mount Pleasant was held to five hits in a 3-2 loss to District 6 champion Bellefonte. Bellefonte was up 3-1 before the Vikings tacked one run on in the bottom of the fifth inning but was unable to come up with the equalizer. Mount Pleasant pitcher Meadow Uncapher had an RBI single in the game. The Vikings finished the season with a 13-6 record.
