Legendary Fall Season for Mercy Athletics
Mercy’s powerhouse athletics program clinches three conference championships!
With six championships in twelve months, Mercy High School Magic Athletics is taking its place among elite high school athletic programs in the country. Winning seasons, expanded teams at the fresh/soph level, and a new athletic offering all signal the continued growth of this storied program.
This fall, Magic Nation has clinched three championships: cross country took the IAAM B Conference crown in their first season after moving up a conference; soccer won the IAAM A Conference after beating McDonogh, the four-time defending champion; and volleyball earned the IAAM B Conference championship. Field hockey also made it to the IAAM B Conference championship game for the second consecutive year, ending their season as runner-up again.
After an exploratory season last year, Mercy tennis played its first full season as a member of the IAAM B Conference. The School also continued to meet the high level of student interest in athletics by fielding fresh/soph soccer and volleyball teams.
Athletic Director Nick Gill notes, “The work and focus of our student-athletes and coaches have taken Mercy Athletics to the next level. Excellence is a core Mercy value, which they reflect in everything they do. We are deeply proud of Mercy Athletics, which together with the International Baccalaureate program, amazing arts offerings, and distinctive special programs, place Mercy in a position of strength in a competitive market.”
