Fall Athletes Break School Records; Teams Perform Well

Mercersburg Academy athletic records fell as fast as the leaves during the fall 2022 season. The golf team led the way with Argyle Downes '24 shooting the lowest 18-hole score (in relation to par) in school history with a 4-under-par 69 at Chambersburg Country Club in a Centennial Cup contest against Kiski. The golfers tied the lowest 9-hole team total (151) in school history in a tri-match against Goretti and St. James, a record that was set one year ago. In the Lloyd Aquatic Center, Deniel Nankov '23 broke both the 50-meter freestyle and 100-meter freestyle school records with times of 20.12 and 44.50 seconds, respectively. Meanwhile, the girls' varsity soccer team won the Commonwealth Cup division of the Pennsylvania Independent School Athletic Association (PAISAA) state tournament, and the football team hosted a thrilling Keystone State Football League semifinal game against Perkiomen, which came down to the final play before Perkiomen prevailed 42-36. The boys' varsity soccer, boys' cross country, and girls' varsity volleyball teams also competed in postseason PAISAA events, and in the sub-varsity world, the JV volleyball squad ended its season on a nine-game winning streak.
