The Mount Mercy Softball team completed a difficult season with three losses.  The team lost a doubleheader to Mount Saint Mary and a single contest to Saint Mary’s of Lancaster.

Freshman Cassidy Westbrook (Silver Creek) pitched both games of the doubleheader, giving it all she had, according to Coach Mary Kate Dougherty. She finished with four strikeouts.  Juniors Madison Serafini (Buffalo) and Megan Amicone (Buffalo), along with Westbrook each had a single.

Westbrook went two for two in her final two at bats for the season and had a single against St. Mary’s of Lancaster.  Freshman pitcher Taylor Jahn (Buffalo) took the loss but had three strikeouts.  

“Although this season did not unfold as I had once envisioned, I’m proud of my final 10 for

sticking through this season, given all the adversity we faced. I’m proud of the improvements each player made from the first practice all the way through to the last. Hopefully they can each take something they learned this season and carry it over into next season,” Dougherty commented.

"Mount Mercy has positively changed my life forever. Through the inviting community, I was able to grow as a woman, as a daughter, as a friend, and as a member of society. Throughout my time here I have gained an education in both academic areas and life in general through the school's ongoing efforts to educate students on gender inequality, racial injustice, and environmental crisis'. Furthermore, Mercy has given me the space to gain confidence that 4 years ago I never would have guessed I would have. Mount Mercy has helped me take that initial step toward becoming the strong woman of color I am today. At Mercy you are more than just a student, you are whoever you wish to be."

"My future, success, and the ability to be an empowered woman in society come from Mount Mercy. My school is a strong foundation for my role in life. From attending Mount Mercy, I can say with confidence, that I will graduate with the mindset that I can accomplish anything. Mercy is my home and my sanctuary to be whoever I want. Mount Mercy has been bringing forth generations of strong intellectual women into the world, and I am more than honored to be one of them. Mercy teaches girls more than academics, but also about the world around us. As a mercy community, we give back to the world because it is our home. From my four years at Mercy, I have been educated on pushing for equality and peace and the understanding that there is no limit to what I can do. I have the confidence to go out in the world and make a difference because being a Mercy girl has given me that opportunity. "

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
