Varsity Basketball Advances to Represent the “A” in State Competition

“A” Representative State Semifinals

Holy Trinity 38
Our Lady of Mercy 57

It was 2 years ago today The Lady Mustangs won the A championship – tonight they
played The Lady Titans at Hofstra University for a chance to go to the states. Sammy Shea hit Natalie Pacher with a perfect pass and Mercy was on the board first. Morgan Wolf drained a 3 pointer from the top of the key and Meghan Andersen hit a foul shot and OLMA never looked back. Holy Trinity had a hard time figuring out OLMA’s diamond press. Mercy up 20-8 after 1 quarter. Meghan Andersen and Hailey Clancy got the ball rolling in the 2nd scoring 12 of the team’s 14 points. Natalie Pacher and Kaitlin Anderson controlled the backboards limiting Holy Trinity to only 1 shot. OLMA took an 18 point lead into the locker room 34-16. Sammy Shea hit 2 pull up jumpers in the 3rd and Isabella Coles and Morgan Wolf shut down the Lady Titan’s offense. Meghan Andersen’s 3 pointer put Mercy up by 24 in the 4th quarter giving them their biggest lead in the game. Mercy’s diamond press accounted for 30 turnovers which were converted into 24 points. Meghan Andersen led the team with 24 points, Sammy Shea added 12 points and Natalie Pacher had 6 points. Great team effort from start to finish !!!!
