Until this season, the Merion Mercy girls' basketball players hung up their sneakers after the Catholic Academies League playoffs. They will be using those sneakers a little longer this year. Merion Mercy, in its first season of PIAA competition, won the District 1 Class AA title last night with a 51-20 rout of Villa Joseph Marie at Wissahickon High.

The Merion Mercy girls' basketball team is dealing with a small issue. That is, most of its players are, in fact, small. The average height for Merion Mercy players is 5-foot-7. Take out 5-10 Carolyn Klusek and the team shrinks about half a foot. So it figures that a big reason for Merion Mercy's 1-3 record is its lack of height. Consider Amanda Brown. The 6-2 Unionville center helped her team take care of Merion Mercy in a 56-38 win last week. "We're undersized right now," Merion Mercy coach Joe D'Antonio said.
