Two Mount Mercy Basketball Players Earn Post-Season Honors


                For the second straight year, Mount Mercy basketball players Hannah Fredo (Buffalo) and Emily Kessler (West Seneca) earned All-Catholic Honors.

                Fredo, a senior, returned to the First Team All-Catholic for the second straight year.  She was one of the team’s top two scorers and rebounders, averaging 10 points and grabbing 10 rebounds per game.  Fredo also led the team in blocked shots.  She finished her four-year varsity career with almost 800 points and had over 500 rebounds.

                Kessler, also a senior, moved up from Honorable Mention All-Catholic to the First team.  Along with Fredo she was the other top scorer and rebounder, averaging ten points and ten boards each contest.  She concluded her three-year varsity career with over 500 points and 500 rebounds.

                “It is a well-deserved honor for both of the seniors,” Coach John Glose remarked.  “Hannah and Emily are high character young ladies who are a pleasure to coach and be around.  They have been great role models for their teammates, especially the underclassmen.  I have no doubt that they will be successful in all they attempt in the future.”

"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."
