A pair of Mercersburg relay teams on the boys’ and girls’ sides are making their annual trip to compete in the prestigious Penn Relays April 28-30. The event is the oldest and largest track & field event in America, and is held each year at Franklin Field on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
A total of 14 additional recruited athletes who are members of Mercersburg’s Class of 2016 have officially announced their college choices. Athletes in the group join six of their classmates who had previously made their college selections in the fall and winter, giving Mercersburg 20 future college athletes in this year’s graduating class (so far).
Maddi Jones ’17 drove in Joana Santos ’16 with the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning as Mercersburg’s varsity softball team downed the Maryland School for the Deaf, 12-11, in an Independent-Parochial School League game played in Mercersburg April 25.
Mercersburg’s boys’ varsity lacrosse team easily defeated visiting Wyoming Seminary 17-5 to complete a sweep of an April 23 doubleheader against two different opponents. The Blue Storm had not beaten Wyoming Seminary in more than five years, so this was a big win for the program.
