JV Sport- Marisa May
Marisa May was selected by Coach Kim Marron and Coach John as student-athlete of the month. Coach Kim writes, "Marisa May has been a hard-working soccer player since the day we started practice. She never gives up and is continuously working to improve her skills. She knows how to be a team player and is very respectful to her coaches. She has been such a joy to work with and her positive attitude reflects on all of the other players. She has a bright future ahead of her. Keep up the great work Marisa you have made a positive impact on everyone and we would like to thank you for that!

In addition to the two athletes chosen as Student-Athletes  of the month, we would also like to recognize the other athletes who were nominated by their coaches.

From varsity volleyball, Coach Ladowski nominated Morgan Steele. Steele is a tremendous leader as the setter on the court and is an even better student in the classroom, where she challenges several AP courses and excels at all of them.  She can always be counted on to pick the team up, and her level of competition and hustle is unrivaled on our team.

From varsity soccer, goalkeeper Courtney Kaczor was nominated by Coach Glose. Courtney recorded four shut-outs in the opening month of the season, including three games where she was asked to make over 20 saves. Kaczor works hard everyday to help the team get better and in games is a true competitor. Her acrobatic saves have helped lead the team to a 5-4 start.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
