Mount Mercy could join Chicagoland league

The athletes at Mount Mercy University could become very familiar with Chicago and northwest Indiana in the years to come.

There are growing signs that the Mustangs might join the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference for the 2015-16 school year, pending a possible vote of league presidents at their executive meeting in early October.

Mount Mercy is currently a member of the Midwest Collegiate Conference, but that league will be disbanding after the 2014-15 school year due to a lack of members with Grand View and William Penn departing for another league.

Jeff Schimmelpfening, the commissioner of the Chicagoland Conference, told the Metro Sports Report Saturday that league officials have been talking to Mount Mercy officials since the spring about adding the Mustangs to the league.

"We have met with them," he confirmed. "At this point we're moving forward."



Mount Mercy women boot Roosevelt

The Mount Mercy women's soccer team jumped to a 4-0 lead Sunday and held off Roosevelt, 5-4, in the season opener at Lower Kingston Field.

Lauren Konchar, Cally Salter, Danielle Herdliska and Lauren Plante scored in the first half to give the Mustangs their 4-0 advantage, but Roosevelt got rolling and pulled within 4-3 in the second half to make it exciting.

Taylor Eaker tallied for the Mustangs to make it 5-3, helping the Mustangs withstand a final goal by Roosevelt (1-2).

Konchar collected two assists for Mount Mercy. Eaker also had an assist.


Mustangs fall to Dakota State

The Mount Mercy volleyball team was trimmed by Dakota State, 25-21, 25-15, 24-26, 28-26, at the Mount Mercy Invitational Saturday morning at the Hennessey Recreation Center.

Mount Mercy's second match was canceled due to moisture on the court.

Leslie Hoffmann had 18 kills against Dakota State. Demi Heiss had 13 kills, Abbie Perez 23 assists, Ashley Strong 19 assists and Samantha Meyer 16 digs.
