Mount Mercy Sports Round-Up

 

Varsity Basketball

 

                The Mount Mercy Academy Varsity Basketball team saw its season come to an end in the semi-finals of the basketball playoffs.  The team hosted Nichols but ended up on the short end of a 33-27 score.  The teams were knotted at 11 at the half, but Nichols outscored the Magic 8-2 in the third quarter and that proved to be the difference in the game.

                Mount Mercy trailed at various points of the first half but battled back to tie or take the lead.  However cold shooting plagued the team throughout the contest, but particularly in the second half.  The team shot 24 percent from the floor. Despite the shooting difficulties and turnovers, strong defense kept the game close.

                Three seniors led the team in their final game.  Hannah Fredo (Buffalo) led team with 15 points and added 6 rebounds.  Cecilia Strang (Westfield) had five points and led the team with 11 rebounds.  Emily Kessler (West Seneca) scored four points and had eight rebounds.  Junior Mya Wood (Blasdell) added four assists.

"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."
