Marion wins 400th game!

Honoring a tremendous coach on this career milestone

Congratulations Mary Ella Franz Marion '76 on her 400th coaching victory!

The 2019 Christmas break got off to a momentous start with two victories for the record books. The 12/21 and 12/22 games were the 399th and 400th victories in the basketball coaching career of Mercy's own dean of students, Mary Ella Franz Marion '76. This impressive milestone came in a hard-fought 31-30 victory at home over one of our sister schools, Our Lady of Mercy Academy, from Syosset, NY.
