“Competition was fierce and spirited, but it took a backseat to an amazing display of sportsmanship.” – Scott Lee, McDowell fan of MPS athletes
At Mercyhurst Prep athletics fuel the energetic and dynamic rhythm in the day-to-day heartbeat of our school. Our athletes win on the field and they win in life. Each year dozens of MPS student athletes go on to compete at the collegiate level. Members of our rowing team are consistently awarded scholarships and compete on their college rowing teams.
The combination of outstanding athletic programs and the Mercy charism builds pride and spirit as well as some of the region’s finest student athletes. We boast eight State Championships, and we always field athletes who make us proud, win or lose. In 2012-13 and again in 2013-14, our MPS Women’s Tennis team claimed the state championship. In 2014 Women’s Doubles took home the PIAA AA title. The MPS family rallies around all of our student-athletes who always show their Laker Pride. Our Laker Tailgates are a new tradition that harnesses the energy of our fans and Lakers young and old.
