The Mercy Girl Experience


Magic Nation Athletics

Magic Nation Athletics provides the opportunity for our Mercy Girls to develop fundamentals, skills, and strategies in a highly competitive and successful environment. More important, however, is the mission to give guidance in developing integrity, sportsmanship, self-concept, team concept, cooperative skills, self-discipline, and perspective in relation to sports competition.
Mercy athletics integrates the classic high school sports experience with a professional feel. We take pride in being leaders in the digital sports marketing of our Mercy Girls.

Magic Nation Athletics proudly partners with UnderArmor for athletic wear and FX Physical Therapy for our athletic training needs. Based in Hunt Valley, FX Physical Therapy was started in 2015 by Dr. Jerod Felice. Since then, they have expanded to 13 locations throughout Maryland. FX provides a one-stop shop for all sports medicine care, and we are grateful to their staff who provide comprehensive, individualized care on campus for all of our Mercy athletes.

Our athletic facilities set us apart! In Fall 2019, Mercy High School opened the Sisters of Mercy Athletic Complex featuring the Sisters of Mercy Field, for soccer, field hockey, and lacrosse, and the Mary Anne Heckwolf ’66+ Field, for softball. 

In Fall 2022, the floor in Mercy’s spacious gymnasium was renamed the Mary Ella Marion ’76 Court. Mary Ella Marion ’76 retired from Mercy High School at the end of the 2021-22 school year after having served as dean of students, athletic director, and long-time Varsity Basketball coach. During her time as athletic director, Ms. Marion was instrumental in working to establish the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland, the league in which Mercy competes.
