                Recently the Mount Mercy Academy Varsity Basketball team hosted a skills clinic for the students at St. Mary’s School for the Deaf.  The team, along with Head Coach John Glose and Assistant Coaches Paul Crowley and Courtney Kaczor, demonstrated various basketball skills for the students and then served as their “cheerleaders” as the St. Mary’s students practiced the new skills that the team had demonstrated.

                The Mount Mercy basketball players were eager to assist the students at the clinic and enjoyed the opportunity to help them.  “I loved working closely with the students and giving them tips.  Seeing the smiles on their faces and knowing that the team and I were helping them with something that all of us loved was very rewarding,” Junior Katie Hughes (Orchard Park) stated.  “It was inspiring to see all of the hard work and effort that every student put forth into basketball.  They were all energetic and eager to learn.  It was a powerful experience for all of us and it made us feel good to give something back to the community,” Hughes concluded.
