Mount Mercy Golf Team Hopes to Drive to a Successful Season

                The Mount Mercy Academy Golf team is pinning its hopes for a successful season on three returning golfers and four new golfers.  The team is coached by long time coach Kate Lynch, a successful golfer who once again won the Cazenovia Women’s League Individual title. 

                Returning for their second year on the golf team are seniors Chloe Diebold (West Seneca) and Haley George (Elma) and junior Xoie Ferrentino (West Seneca).  Lynch stated that all three have improved their games since last season and she is hoping that the improved play will continue throughout the season.  She expects Ferrentino to be the top returning golfer. 

 Freshman Izzy Radwan (West Seneca) , sophomore Olivia Radwan (West Seneca), junior Maddie DiGiore (Lakeview) and senior Ally Foy (Buffalo) are the newcomers to the team.  Lynch commented that the enthusiasm and eagerness of the four new players will help the team to succeed.  She feels that Izzy Radwan and DiGiore will play key roles this season.

Lynch is counting on constant improvement and increased concentration to lead the team to more victories this season.  The team opens its eight match season at home on September 6th against Sacred Heart.

"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."
