Mercy Academy is one of Kentucky's and the nation's strongest and most competitive volleyball programs, with multiple state championships including back-to-back in 2008 and 2009 and currently the 2014 Kentucky State Champions and the 2014 National Champions. The 2014 team went 40-1 on the season and went 13-0 against teams ranked in the top 25 in the country. The Jaguars finished with a #1 in the Nation ranking which is where they had been ranked since the first week of September. Other highlights include winning the LIVT Tournament, the Berkeley Premier Tournament in Tampa, Florida and the Brebeuf Jesuit Tournament in Indianapolis.
Mercy is excited to welcome our new head coach, Matt Thomerson to the program along with new Assistant Varsity Coaches Caitlin Welch and Madison Hardy. We extend a huge thank you and good luck to Coach Todd Garvey as he pursues volleyball coaching at the collegiate level.
