A Junior College success story:
Mercer left Westchester’s basketball mecca to move to Marshalltown, population 25,850. But at Marshalltown Community College, she matured in more ways than one, becoming only the 17th woman to earn consecutive spots on the first-team NJCAA Division II All-America team.
The result is a Division I scholarship to Maryland-Eastern Shore.
“I feel like I deserved it because of everything I went through,” Mercer said. “I feel like I was competitive with some of the best.”
