Mount Mercy Volleyball Player Named All-Western New York

                Mount Mercy senior Kate Ryan (Buffalo) was recently named to the First Team All-Western New York for volleyball.  Ryan, an opposite hitter, is a three-time All-Catholic selection and a three time Most Valuable Player for the team.  She has also been a team captain for three years and a four-year varsity starter.

                In six matches this season she registered 28 kills, 16 aces and 34 digs.  A left-handed hitter, Ryan is a commanding presence from the right side and her arsenal of serves are difficult for opponents to receive.  She also, according to Coach Brittany Sanscrainte possesses many skills that do not translate to the stat sheet.

                Ryan will attend Daemen College on a partial volleyball scholarship. “It has been a long time, if not the first time that Mount Mercy has had an All-WNY Volleyball honoree. I am glad Kate has gotten the recognition that she richly deserves,” Sanscrainte commented. “I am proud to say that I have been able to coach her the past four years.  She has taught me things about the game and I cannot wait to see her progress at Daemen.”

"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."
