Merion Mercy Golden Bears victorious!
44 was out today to catch some Catholic Academy League action between Merion Mercy Academy and Gwynedd Mercy Academy. I had promised my buddy, for two years, to see his daughter play and can now cross that off my bucket list. Merion was victorious 59-52 behind the 12 point 5 assist effort of senior Brigid Klarich, who has narrowed her college choices down to Loyola Maryland, St. Joseph's University, and Loyola Illinois.
The rivalry between these two schools operated by the Sisters of Mercy is far more polite than most games I've attended, and you could hear a pin drop when either team was shooting fouls. Best of luck to both teams in the playoffs.
