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.

"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."
