MSR covering Mount Mercy sports again


The Metro Sports Report is delighted to announce that we will be covering Mount Mercy University during the 2018-19 school year and hopefully for many more years to come.

The Metro Sports Report provided extensive coverage of the Mustangs from 2014 through 2016, but we had to curtail our operation due to financial constraints. That is no longer the case.

"The Metro Sports Report has bounced back nicely the past few years and is expanding its operation again," said Jim Ecker, the president and owner of the website company. "We greatly enjoyed covering Mount Mercy the first time around and we're looking forward to covering the Mustangs again."

The new coverage will begin next week with the beginning of fall sports and will continue throughout the school year. Mount Mercy offers a total of 18 varsity sports and is recognized as one of the top NAIA schools in the Midwest and around the country.

The eight men's sports are baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, golf, soccer, track and volleyball. The eight women's sports are basketball, bowling, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, track and volleyball. Mount Mercy also offers two coed sports with competitive cheer and competitive dance.

Mount Mercy is a member of the Heart of America Conference, which is considered one of the top NAIA leagues in the country. The university greatly enhanced its sports programs last year when it opened the Robert W. Plaster Complex for baseball, softball, soccer and track.

The Metro Sports Report also offers extensive coverage of Kirkwood Community College, the Iowa Women's Softball League and the Iowa Valley League at MetroSportsReport.com.

"We are looking to add even more teams and leagues as we move forward," said Ecker. "The future looks bright again."

The Metro Sports Report created the Iowa Women's Softball League in 2016 and played all of its games in the Eastern Division this summer at Busse Field at Mount Mercy.

The Metro Sports Report company was incorporated in the fall of 2010 and launched MetroSportsReport.com in early January of 2011.
