Mount Mercy Soccer Looking to Kick Its Way into the Playoffs

                Fourth year Coach Brittany Myers is expecting her Mount Mercy Soccer team to use its speed and leadership to attain a successful season.  The team has a combination of experience and youth this season with a total of nine freshmen and sophomores, one junior and seven seniors.

                Leading the six seniors are four year varsity soccer players Alesia Hamm (Buffalo) and Mariah Rullan (Buffalo).  Both players achieved First Team All-Catholic Honors last season.  Rullan was a top scorer for the team last season and Hamm excelled at both ends of the field.  Sophomores Gianna Lauciello (Orchard Park) and Anna Schieber (Buffalo) also return as second year starters and Myers has high expectations for both players.  Newcomers to the team, sophomore Emily Kessler (West Seneca) and freshman Mya Wood (Blasdell) are also expected to be key contributors this season.

                Myers believes that in order for the team to be successful they must continue to improve their endurance, increase their technical skills as well as their communication.  She also believes that the team can utilize its non-league games to prepare the team for its league games.

                The team opened its non-league season last week and begins league play on September 10th

"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."
