Mercy High seniors celebrate with graduation parade on last day of school

365体育备用网站Friday would have been the last time the 186 students in Mercy High School's senior class walked the school's halls before starting their adult lives.

Instead, the school held a parade for the class of 2020 on what would have been their last day as Mercy Marlins. Most, if not all, of the school's senior class turned out to celebrate. 

365体育备用网站"There was a lot of honking of horns and yelling kids' names," said Cheryl Kreger, the school's president. "It was so much fun."

    Mercy basketball learns from past to move forward

    Gary Morris, like many head coaches, is focused on the day-to-day journey of a season. The 15-year head coaching veteran at Mercy High School tries not to dwell on long-term goals or what "could be." The focus is on the next game. 

    But when looking at his current roster, he can’t help but think back on 2013. 

    365体育备用网站Finishing the regular season with a 15-6 record, the Marlins cruised through districts, beating each opponent by double digits. That success continued into the regional semifinals, beating Southfield-Lathrup by 19. 

    However, a five-point overtime loss to Detroit King in the regional final thwarted the Marlins’ chance of getting to the state semifinals. 

    But they had another summer.
