We did it! Thanks to the support of swim families, parents, alumnae and friends we have met our fundraising goal to repair the Mercy pool.
Stay tuned for information on our website on the pool re-opening this summer. We will also be promoting and selling S'well Mercy water bottles to support the purchase of new pool flags.
The Mercy High School pool has a proud and strong tradition including swim classes through Physical Education and an outstanding Swim and Dive Team. We recognize and celebrate the importance of this legacy to our students, alumnae and Mercy High School.
The Mercy pool is original to the current campus and has been maintained for 53 years. During Christmas break, it was discovered that there were several operational issues with the pool. Unfortunately, due to the severity, the pool has been closed. After professional assessments, we have determined the much needed repairs to get the Mercy pool operational by the 2017 fall season.
Contributions from current Mercy families, graduates and supporters will help keep the pool running, keep the girls swimming, and keep our Mercy Marlins legacy alive. The Mercy Swim and Dive team boasts 8 STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS (1972, 1998, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013), 50 Catholic League Championships and 18 Oakland County Championships.
Thanks to generous donations made at the Auction and donor support, we are half way to the funds needed. We need your help. Your gift will directly support the efforts to get our pool back in working order. Any funds raised above our goal will support on going pool maintenance and projects. Please be sure to leave a comment about your favorite swim memory.
