Two Mount Mercy Athletes Earn Academic Accolades


  Recently two Mount Mercy Academy athletes were honored by Section VI. Both were named to the Section VI All-Western New York Scholar-Athlete winter sports team. Students who are selected most maintain a 90 plus average for the previous six semesters and have been a starter or significant player in their sports. Seniors from the over 100 public and private high schools across Western New York are eligible and then the most qualified are selected.  Representing Mount Mercy Academy oh the winter All-Western New York Scholar-Athlete team are Samantha Batchev (Lackawanna) and Josslynn Strang (Westfield).

    Batchev was a member of the bowling team which won the All-Catholic Championships this season.  She was the All-Catholic Championship MVP, as well as a First Team All-Catholic. Strang participated on the basketball team, earning Honorable Mention All-Catholic Honors this season.

"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."
