Athletic Director’s Message
Welcome to the Mercy High School Athletics page!
The Athletics Department at MHS addresses the school mission in a variety of ways. The objective of the school is to develop the whole person through a nurturing environment in the areas of spiritual and moral formation, intellectual, personal, social, physical and aesthetic development. Sports and athletic competition are an excellent venue for development in all of these areas, from the drive and determination necessary to run in track, to the focus needed to sink a putt in golf. Athletics at Mercy High School strive to allow students to learn sportsmanship, practice decision-making skills, work together, and showcase talents. It is truly a key facet in the building of our tight-knit family atmosphere.
Mercy has a long tradition of student participation in sports. In recent years, student participation in at least one sport has reached 95%. Teams and individuals from various sports throughout the decades have won or competed for section and state championships. It is also quite common for our teams to receive special designation from NCIF for high grade point averages. For example, in 2006, our softball team was awarded Academic State Champions and they made the playoffs!

Weekly Athletic Grade Check Form
In effect beginning the 2018-19 school year, students participating in athletics and extra-curricular activities will be required to submit a weekly grade check form each week to their coach/activity supervisor filled out and turned into the front office by 3:30p.m each Thursday during the sports or activity season. Forms require each teacher to sign and report the student's current grade status. It is the student's responsibility to acquire the form each week from their coach, the Athletic Director or the front office.
