Mercy Volleyball standout Julia Bishop '21 was named First Team Under Armour All-American!

As a senior setter, Julia has helped lead the team in a 2019 State Championship and helped win 26 straight to start the 2020 season. She is committed to play at Michigan State University and has more than 5,000 assists in her four-year career on Mercy Varsity Volleyball.

Back in 1999, Jenny Borowiec made a hole-in-one for Farmington Hills Mercy. Two years later, her sister, Erin, also accomplished the feat.

Those were the last aces in program history.

That is, until Sept. 24 and Sept. 28, when Chloe Vig did it. Yes, both days.

Vig, a sophomore at Mercy who has been playing competitive golf for less than two years, made two holes-in-one in a five-day span — doing twice in less than a week what many far more accomplished golfers wait their whole lives to do just once.

When Mercy took the court against Marian Wednesday night, it had yet to fall from the peak that last season’s state championship brought the program. 

The Marlins held a 22-game win streak heading into the match, having lost only one set all season — against Stoney Creek Sept. 11 in a tournament game. 

However, when facing the Mustangs, no matter where each team is at, games always seem to be close.
