2022 Ski Season Wrap-Up
Mercy competed in the Southeast Michigan Ski League Championship (SEMSL) on Thursday, February 24th. The team earned this honor by placing in the top three teams at the Mt. Brighton Championship. This race pits the top teams from every hill in the area, Pine Knob, Mt Holly, and Alpine Valley. Mercy skied very well on their way to a third place finish, coming behind Milford and Cranbrook/Kingswood. Mercy took 51 points in the morning Slalom session and was led by Junior Alaina Hatcher, who finished tied for 6th. She was supported by MillerWright (8), Williams (10), and Langley (26.5). In the afternoon GS session, the team was led by Senior Sadie MillerWright with a 4th place finish. Sadie was supported by Williams (8.5), Hatcher (12), and Langley (33). This race concludes the season for the team, with Mikaela Williams and Alaina Hatcher still to compete in the State Finals as Individuals.
Juniors Mikaela Williams and Alaina Hatcher competed as individuals at the 2022 MHSAA Skiing State Finals, hosted by Boyne Mountain. Mikaela took 31st overall in Slalom, and 42nd in GS. Her teammate, Alaina Hatcher, took 53rd in slalom, and 45th in GS. Both athletes had tremendous seasons and showed great improvement and resilience in overcoming any obstacles in their way. We look forward to their leadership next year as seniors and more achievements to come. Next year's season starts today!
