Track and Field

               The Mount Mercy Academy Track team continued to work hard and improve its performances.  The team had six competitors against Saint Mary’s of Lancaster and O’Hara but still managed many strong individual efforts. 

               Senior Rheanna Welsh (Lackawanna) won the 400 meter run against both schools with a time of 1:07.6.  Senior Megan Reilly (Buffalo) won the triple jump against O’Hara with a leap of 30’4” finishing second against St. Mary’s.  Reilly took second place in the 200 meter run against both schools with a time of 29.42.  She also finished second against O’Hara and third against St. Mary’s in the long jump, with a jump of 13’ 5”.  Freshman Rosie Bandura (West Seneca) took second against both schools in the 1500 meter run with a time of 6:06 and teammate Gemma McIlroy (Hamburg) finished third in both meets with a time of 6:16. Junior Aubrey Monaco (Buffalo) took second in the discus in both meets with a throw of 61’8”.  She threw the shot 19’ 11”, which was good for second against O’Hara and third against St. Mary’s.  Senior Angelina Larivey (Lackawanna) finished third in the 400 against both teams with a time of 1:14.05.

                The team closes its regular season with a meet against Sacred Heart and will then compete in the All-Catholic Championships this weekend.

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
