On Thursday, Monrovia High School Senior Joseph Mata signed a national letter of intent to play baseball at CSU Bakersfield. Mata, who has played at the varsity level for the past three years is a standout at first base, outfield and on the mound. He was selected as an All-CIF First Team member, as well as an All- San Gabriel Valley Team member. Mata is the reigning MVP of the Rio Hondo League. The ceremony was attended by the MHS administrative team, Joseph's family and friends, as well as the entire varsity team and co-coaches Dave Moore and Brad Blackmore. Another Wildcat celebration from the home of scholars and champions!
